Fine shot at 500mm., Trev: I would never have seen it at that distance never mind capture it as well as you have.

Powerful lens - super image of a kestrel.
I'd be delighted to capture one of these but haven't been to Bird Sanctuary for ages.
It's always good to capture a bird you've never got before.
You were fortunate he sat in that gap!

So difficult to get. Great shot Trev. Birds of Prey in the wild are so hard and you have to take your rare opportunities. You've done it here brilliantly. Paul
