Re: Kestrel

Fab shot. Love the timing,looks as he is ready to swoop down presumably having seen his prey.

Re: Kestrel

Keith this is one from Barr1e Norman's gallery I thought it time to open picture of the day again as it seems to have been forgotten.

Re: Kestrel

Must have missed this originally - pay your compliments to Barrie Norman by rating in the gallery. Unfortunately he doesn't seem to have visited the group for a while (September 2011).

(Barry Norman is not I think Barr1e)

Ooo - if only I had taken it.

Re: Kestrel

Not mine (I wish but) this is from Barrie Normans gallery. I just thought it time this thread was restarted and I found a good one.

Re: Kestrel

I am on my work computer now...but when I get home I will upload a pic I snagged of an Australian Hobby Falcon...very lucky shot to be honest...they don't sit still long.
I assume you like Birds of Prey?

Re: Kestrel

Really fantastic.
My favourite wild bird. Magical bird that is overlooked because it is relatively common,
