Kestrel Shoot at Marazion

Well I needed to burn some fuel off from the van before working on it tomorrow, so it was off to Marazion. Nothing doing and it was cold.  Out of the blue a Kestrel appeared and commenced hunting near the camera. I said yesterday on the blog all I needed was a blue sky. Well today I got one.  Hope you like the images:

First hunting circuit and a nice close up

Hovering low enabled a changed of background

On the ground ready to eat lunch

Off again having been disturbed by a rabbit

Finally the closest shot today

It was really difficult picking out the shots for the blog, there were so many to choose from as this bird posed beautifully for the camera.  Hope you enjoyed them!!!

Great images Bob, I just posted my kestrel images from the Wildlife Trust meeting at Godrevy but now I think I'll remove them as they look pretty poor against your work. It's a delight to work in good light isn't it?

Stunning images Bob back to your best? Am beginning to think you have some sort of arrangement with that Kestrel is it the same bird as last year?

Hi there Bobbster!

Just found your blog - very nice indeed! I love these Kestrel images, especially the moment of capture in the 3rd one. Brilliant.
