When I arrived at Cliffe pools on Sunday, I couldn't believe the Kestrel was sitting up on the telegraph wires, so close to the car park. My wife and I moved slowly as close as we dare, and then just waited to see what would happen. The result was a spectacular exhibition of hunting, just metres away from where we stood.
Great photos chrisw, looks like he was keeping a beady eye on you too!
In reply to MrsT:
Think this was probably the one i saw saturday. He was sitting on telephone pole near car park too.
In reply to deedee:
It is just a shame my attempts at photgraphing this beautiful bird in flight did not come out so well,,, excitement got to me a bit....
In reply to chrisw:
Mine came out as a blur too. Was not expecting it to take off as it had sat there so long
Deedee..... these are my attempts , but she was too fast!!
Been down to Cliffe today and Kestral was there near the car park again :). ChrisW the middle flying pic pretty good you can tell its a kestral
