Went for a walk today just like last week - South Sheilds, The Leas - and yes the Kestrel put in an appearance for about an hour!!
Therefore todays image is anther Kestrel image - which I suspect is the same wild bird!!

Many thanks for your votes on the Avocet , yesterday. Much Appreciated. Thanks must also go to Jukka for his User Award- welcome and much appreciated!!

Have a great day

Bill
