Good morning everyone,

I hope you don't mind the continuing theme of birds of prey (I still have a few to share), today a have a small selection of Kestrel images which were taken dotted around the farmyard.

Many thanks for your kind comments on my previous uploads in this series, and many thanks to carol for her user award on yesterdays "The Hunter" images - they are greatly appreciated.

Well the weekend has just about arrived - I hope you have a great one planned - for me it's back to business as usual with photographing a band called Iron on Maiden this evening (so I should have some musical images to break up the wildlife for you next week - or one could say I will have a different type of wildlife for you next week)!

Best wishes
Heather

A fantastic set Heather, what a beautiful looking bird this is. I have yet to get a decent shot of a Kestrel, we have a pair nesting in work but I'm not allowed to take my camera in...grrrr.

So glad to make this set 30 Heather. The quality of these images is superb, the dof is spot on, and very nicely composed. How could I NOT give my award ?
