a pair of Kestrels

One of the Barn owls was hunting on The Meadow reserve in Banks again and i was hoping to get you all a photo when he flew off -frightened by some crows who also flushed out a pair of grey partridge. Then i noticed this pair on the corner of the Flavourfresh greenhouse -Mr and Mrs kestrel. I have hardly ever seen a pair together like this -one or other is here every day but here they are definatley a pair! Mr has a slate grey head and is on the right.


Before i go- the first swallow arrived today but only one so that doesn't make a summer!


Cheers David
