My Sunday Photo – February 18th, 2018.


While we were out for a walk at Strumpshaw Fen, Mark spotted a kestrel hunting over a field. We stopped to watch and were amazed when it landed nearby – and even more so when it stayed long enough for me to take photos.

A volunteer in the information centre said it was a young one so maybe that’s why it was less cautious? Even with Freya’s non-stop chatter it stuck around for a bit.

Hope you’ve had a good week – especially if it’s been half term.

  1. It takes some amazing timing and luck to get an image of a bird of prey. I never seem to be in the correct place at the correct time! Very impressed you got these images, especially with Freya chatting away!


  2. Hi Tara, what a beautiful shot. I’m no expert but I agree she could well be a young one (I say she as I think she looks like a girl, nothing more scientific than that). It’s not unusual for us to see buzzards on telegraph poles, but I have yet to get a good photograph of one… Love the name Strumpshaw Fen! It even sounds English.
