Car park Kestrel

_DSC4658 (1280x852)

When on my way to work on a morning I often spot this Kestrel.

Because he lives around a busy car park, he is used to people and rarely cares if I approach for a photo. This particular lamp-post is a favourite spot and he uses it to scan the nearby grass bank for small mammals. Hence he usually doesn’t look at me. In fact he swooped along right past me onto this perch.

I took these pictures in late April. Presumably by this point he was already busy feeding up young, as I saw him with a female earlier in the year. Not seen her recently.

He had no luck from the post on this occasion and set off for a new spot. I didn’t quite keep up!
