|Kestrel hovering over the edge of the wood|
It was a beautifully clear, though cold, morning with a fresh light blue sky and what should I see almost immediately but a glorious kestrel hovering over the headland at the edge of the woods. The wind has been brisk, but as he hovered, his head moved not an inch ... so intent on watching the small creatures below.
