Kestrel...

By HUMIE  
I 've seen a few of these beautiful birds posted on here recently , so thought it was about time I uploaded one from the British wildlife centre. I took this one last week, and am delighted with the composition, however you may find it a bit noisy, as the light was poor and I had to ramp the ISO up to 800 to get the shot.

Thanks as always for your c & c's and I hope you like this image. Hope you all had a great weekend ?
As seems to be the norm at the moment, I'm very busy so may just click and run tonight....got at least a further 2500 images from last week and the weekend to sort through...He-ho.

As regulars will know....I still dont use P.S. This image was out of the camera, with slight crop and adjustments to levels in canons zoombrowser.

Looks good to me Mike. I have tried catching this bird at BWC and it isnt easy. This is an excellent Kestral.
