Kestrel

By justin c
I had a magnificent viewing experience last week. Very early in the morning I witnessed the flight display between a pair of Kestrel's. The male was continuously chasing the female, right above my head, and often at very close range.
Quite an experience to witness at close quarters and one which lasted for about twenty minutes.
