Kestrel 2

Another lunch time walk and another squally day, although no rain to speak of. The kestrel was there again, but this time on one of the lamp posts. I was almost underneath, but as I looked up he launched, swooped down low, to head height, just 10 yards in front of me, then banked slightly and the chestnuttty brown of his wings caught the light. Magic. Then, with hardly a wing beat he caught the wind and flying up landed on the next lamp down the road. Just great.
