This image of a Kestrel hovering was one of several captures but this one shows the bird targeting it prey. Taken at Elmley NNR 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: Elmley NNR, Kent
