Today on the way back from work I took a detour and wanted to see how a female Kestrel was doing,
The last time I photographed her the top bill was damaged. A subsequent visit I saw her hunting, there was about a week's gap between the two sightings. I was finished from work quite early today due to an even earlier start it was reasonably bright and not too windy so there was a good chance of seeing her, I wanted an image to see if the damaged bill was healed or healing etc.
There is tow definate areas she hunts and perches up and I turned down the lane heading to the farm and she was in her usual part of the hedge, my windows already down I just switched the engine off and gently rolled to a decent range of her, now the last time I photographed the bird she didn't move much and took loads of images, today she was her usual self and almost instantly took off to her other perch, I got 6 frames which tells you how long she stayed for.
