Kestrels and a Kingfisher

October 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Here are a few more shots from yesterday of the fairly 'tame' kestrel at Sand Bay, another kestrel from Chilton Moor and a Kingfisher taken at Noah's hide at Shapwick Heath.  Not sure what I think about the backlit kestrel - I swing between loving and hating it but the kestrel taking off from the stump I'm very pleased with.
