Just caught a movement out of the corner of my eye, turned and saw the kestrel diving down to its prey. Just pointed and pressed the shutter. Pity about the twigs.

Very well captured, the twigs give a sense of scale and the environment the bird is in.

Well caught. I have never quite seen that pose before and the twigs help the shot.
