One of my favourite birds lennono. I'm lucky enough to have watched a pair successfully raise their brood on a moor in South Lanarkshire a few years back. The fact that they are diurnal was a help. A wonderful shot again.
cracker'First Flight'......I photographed this baby Kestrel, leaving the nest, then plucking up the courage to take it's first flight from the top of a ruined castle......The parents were at the top of a tree nearby, encouraging him/her to take off......The look on the face tells the story..... ...He/She.....made it onto the nearby tree where the parents were perched....
