The Dive

The Kestrel might be our commonest bird of prey but you can never go out and plan to photograph one. This summer I spent some time watching a well-marked male as he looked for prey on the ground from some telegraph wires. I had to try to anticipate the split second he left the wires and more often than not failed to capture the action. However, with luck I did succeed occasionally as can be seen in this weeks blog photo. Some immature birds are shown in the gallery. click here
