Wild and born free this was such a amazing site for me to watch this wonderful Kestrel go about his business………
I certainly was lucky this time to get such a capture of my favourite bird of pray the Kestrel at Snettersham Nr Norfolk England UK.
Kestrels have been recently declining as a result of habitat degradation due to continuing intensive management of farmland and so it is included on the Amber List.
Kestrels are found in a wide variety of habitats, from moor and heath, to farmland and urban areas. The only places they do not favour are forests, vast treeless wetlands and dense mountains. They are a familiar sight, hovering beside a motorway, or other main road. They can often be seen perched on a high tree branch, or on a telephone post or wire, on the look out for prey.
They eat small mammals and birds.
