This female Kestrel was hovering at the side of the road looking for small mammals in the ditch. 

 Her head was held very still as she used her wings and tail to control the wind.


She went up and down the ditch for quite some time before flying off without any lunch .... the voles were safe for a while.


  1. We have lots of kestrels here, but.........I admire you for your great pictures, you can even watch them better than by the naked eye.

  2. Brilliant photos of a beautiful bird. I know how difficutl it is to get such shots. Tips please.
