Cheers Wendy. Went back Sunday to see if they were nesting. Two of them at the top of the tree but leaves stopped me getting a clear photo. Not sure if it's too late to be nesting, may just be part of their territory.
In reply to Bob S:
Yes Bob, far too late, nesting season well over! Outside chance of late fledglings still being fed but should have dispersed by now! Availability of food & numbers in an area will usually dictate if adults remain faithful to their territories!

Brilliant Bob I know Wendy will like the Kestrel but my favourite is the Little Owl.

Thanks Alan. A bit odd with tthe camera on the little owl. Left it running as it disappeared seeing me so went for a stroll around the field. Exposure seems a little odd.
Those are fabulous videos Bob, just been watching on full screen and really enjoyed them, thanks for letting us share even if it leaves me drooling!!!!!
Lot to learn
In reply to gaynorsl:
Thanks Gaynor. Both the little owls and barn owls are quite dependable although the barn owls usually mean an early walk. The kestrels too have quite a small territory around a couple of fields and edge of woodland.
A few from today, great to see the roe deer and obviously the little owl that I've not been to see for a bit.
Great to see the L'Owl again and the Roe deer and Buzzard, not forgetting bonny robin ! lovely set of pics and clip Bob

Thanks Hazel.... pictures were better quality, still getting to grips with the new forum. The little owls are great to watch but I do like coming across the roe deer, so elusive.
