An image taken earlier in the year( November) at the Leas, very close to Frenchmans Bay, South Sheilds. This Kestrel patrols the clifftop area, everyday!! Its one of my own favorites.

Many thanks for your votes and comments on my Chaffinch image, yesterday! Very much appreciated. Also thanks to Patti and Jukka for their User Awards - very much appreciated!!

Have a great Sunday. The forecast for next week is not looking good!!

This is a beautiful portrait of this predator, Bill, one of the best I have ever seen.
It is quite amazing what they manage to perch on..!
I am astounded at the lack of any noise whatsoever at ISO 1250, with tremendous feather detail.
"Excellent"
