Kestrel on a Wire

This smashing bird was on an HT wire, and I drove past it, turned rouned and came back, couldn't see it, turned round AGAIN, and there it was. I pulled in about 10yds past it, and took lots of photos through the window. Apart from a brief glance it ignored me, so I got aut and took more shots. It STILL ignored me. After a minute or so it dropped onto the verge and grabbed something - I couldn't see what - then flew acroos the road in front of oncoming traffic. The face of the lady driving the oncoming car was a picture - she had a broad smile, and so did I. A super sighting. Made it worth going out in the cold...
