Widewater Kestrel, Little Grebes and Turnstones

Kestrel, Falco tinnunculus

On Sunday afternoon I visited Widewater Lagoon and was delighted when the resident Kestrel hovered above me while the sky was still blue. It then perched in a nearby bush allowing for close-up shots. A pair of Little Grebes caught fish and Pied Wagtails picked up food from the car park. I then spent some time with the Turnstones on the beach.
