Following on from the Kestrel images a few days ago, i was somewhat more prepared for this one. Honesty being the policy, neither myself or owner/handler were prepared when she (the Kessie) decided to go awol which meant an interesting afternoon driving / walking up and down country lanes / fields.

Glad to say that whilst i had to abandon the search after a few hours to go an film a business conference i did get a message that Nell had been retrieved - phew!
