A wild Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) doing what Kestrels do best! This one had caught a rodent, settled with its prey on a post 79.9m in front of the camera and, after disembowelling its prey, discarded the entrails.
PS. 10.15am I have just uploaded a V2 to illustrate what happens to this image if cropped in as suggested. IF ONLY the bird had settled close enough for a full frame capture ...but then they never do
My thanks to everybody for their votes and generous comments on my Blue Tit upload. Very much appreciated as always.
