Kestrel in flight

Caught this image of a Kestrel in flight at Crossness Nature Reserve. It was on the hunt and circled for several minutes before moving onto another search area. 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: Belvedere, Kent
