Hi all,

Was wandering around the barracks today when I spotted a Kestrel sitting on top of a goal post on the sports field.

I sat awhile and watched it and it kept flying down on to the field and then back onto various post, some of them quite close to me.

I was trying to work out what it was up to and wondered if it had the remains of a kill.

I stayed a while and took some more photos and saw it doing this:

You will all probably say that is normal behaviour for a kestrel, I have just never seen one doing that before, was really good to watch!
