Lunchtime Kestrel

Lunchtime Kestrel
Cockmoor Hall, Snainton, Scarborough

During a quick ride out to Cockmoor Hall today at Lunchtime to get out of the office for half an hour, I was lucky enough to have great views from the car of this hunting Kestrel.

Luckily the camera was on the front passenger seat and didn't have to get out of the car, which would have frightened the bird away.

One strange thing I noticed was that the Kestrel seemed to be listening for prey as well as looking, note the turned head of the Kestrel on some of the photographs. I thought they only searched for prey with keen eyesight, further investigations will have to take place!!
