On my way into work I wander up round the back of the university library. It can be a very rewarding walk as there is a little bank covered in wildflowers, and I often see rabbits there.
Earlier this week though I saw a kestrel head overhead and perch on the corner of the building.
Unfortunately I don’t tend to have a camera with me, so it’s just these distant shots with the phone.
I figured when I went up the steps to be level with him, he’d soon take flight. But he actually sat there pretty relaxed, like he was pondering which books to take out.
He did eventually move, but only about 5-10m along the roof.
So, shortly after 30 Days Wild came to an end, yet another reminder to be aware. I need to start taking the compact camera with me just in case!
