Fancy a dip?

Kestrel

Don't often see a Kestrel in the garden, but it was such a beautiful warm morning that the pond must have tempted this one in. I think it wanted a bath, but was nervous of the Rook sitting in the corner of the garden. In the end it made do with a brief paddle.

It was ringed, so it seems reasonably likely to be the bird that we caught on 11 February last year.
