Kestrel at St Agnes

The third kestrel entry I have added - perhaps I should have a category entitled "Kestrels I have known and loved"... Anyway, part of the reason for iSpot is to be able to produce a map of sightings - well, I think that's possible... Besides, just because an animal is relatively common that doesn't mean they are not interesting! I think kestrels are fantastic birds: all that biological engineering to be able to hover so precisely. I think this one was a young male: it was diving down at number of potential prey and then eventually landed down on a big, bright green caterpillar. This is when this picture was taken. The picture on the cliff was after feeding.
