Kestrel

Been outside all day, bird ringing (predictably). Though it's quite cold outside and times are hard for wildlife, we didn't encounter any problems with the birds, except the fact that there were tons and tons of them, and we didn't catch them all! - "only" 102 in total.

The stars of the show included an adult female Kestrel (pictured), about 30 Blackbirds, c20 Yellowhammers (including one from 2004!), a Woodpigeon and a decent assortment of Redwings, Song Thrushes, Bullfinches, Reed Buntings, Dunnocks, Robins - even a few Blue Tits...
