Description:

Kestrel dropped from hover onto a small gorse bush on side of SWCP. It failed to catch what it was hunting and struggled briefly to extricate itself from the bush, before flying off at low level over the shrubbery. Couldn't get the camera out and ready before it had flown off over the cliff edge.
