Kestrel in flight

This image of a Kestrel hovering was one of several captures but this one shows the full detail of the bird. Taken at Oare marshes in Kent. Kestrels are widespread, only absent from areas in the most extreme north and west of the UK. Although birds of fairly open country, they adapt well to a range of habitats and can be found in urban areas, farmland and even large gardens as well as open heathland, moorland and upland areas.

Location: Oare Marsh, nr Faversham, Kent
