Following on from the Cuckoo photography, I ventured less than 20 miles further to a well known Kestrel site near Crockey Hill. Here there are two successful pairs of Kestrels, one of which has a brood that are fledging whilst the others were being fed in the nest by the parents. The light was still a low, warm type which helped to bring out the detail in the birds as they took bait on a regular basis. The gentle, natural colours of the receding fields and farmland provided complementary colours that softly blurred into the distance providing a perfect backdrop to the main subjects. The sightings were so good that I stayed around for around four hours observing and photographing one of my favourite birds of prey at such close quarters as they performed for the camera.
