Kestrel at Lodmoor

The kestrel was probably the first bird that I really "noticed" and it introduced me to all that I know and love today. I'd always been interested in natural history but you could always see kestrels so easily, especially when driving with my mother up the M1 and M6 to Birmingham to see my aunt, from our North london home. That was the late 60s and early 70s when kestrels seemed to be everywhere but particularly beside our main arterial routes on the embankments. Today, sadly, there are but a tiny fraction of that huge population left. A lovely bird and so fascinating to watch.
