Description:

Kestrel hunting along the cliffs at Bigbury-on-Sea. I'm fairly confident it's a female but I guess it could be a juvenile male... anyone prepared to confirm which?

If the rump is plain grey, it is a young male. Can't quite be sure from the photo, but it sort of looks that way.

Thanks Ian, it certainly does look that way.
