    Can;t be sure from this view but it looks loike a kestrel Mike. I think that would have been a great picture even without the bird. That fence looks awesome!

  • we originally thought it was a Kestrel, but when flew off it’s wings were broader & blunter than a Kestrel,
    I was wondering if it was an Immature Sparrowhawk

    Fantastic image, Mike! Everything works, composition is spot on.

  • thanks Sheila
    I took several.
    I would take one , walk 10 paces forward then another & so on
    I wanted to get a little bit closer but was pleased with this

    Right place right time!.. Fantastic capture

  • I was pleased to capture this little fellow. A couple of months ago a buzzard landed about 10 metres from my car, unfortunately I didnt have time to focus before a van drove by and it flew off.
