There looks to have been an outbreak of Kestrels landing on old barn guttering recently . Well here is my contribution.

I picked this one because it shows off the facial colouring, something I had not noticed in these birds before.

My thanks to Cheryl for organising the day, it went well plus the weather was far better than expected. Also the people that looked after the birds were worth listening to as well.

Hi John, I think this is the best of the gutter shots. You are right it was a good day and I learnt a lot.

Like I said before, I really love that picture, the browns contrast next to the vibrant green is amazingGrin
