Hovering beside a roadside verge.

Kestrels have been recently declining as a result of habitat degradation due to continuing intensive management of farmland.

They have adapted readily to man-made environments and can survive right in the centre of cities.

    Beautiful shot, lovely portrait. Interesting pose- I’ve never seen that, but then I’ve never tried to photograph a kestrel. His concentration…!

    Splendorous plumage pattern and a lovely facial close-up. Urban wildlife teaches us many lessons: adaptation, co-existence, loss of habitat, encroachment, conflicts with mankind, survival. I find this touching image along your narrative very representative.
