Finally had a break in the weather and went down to some marshes close to me and managed to get this Kestrel which was a joy to watch and photograph

The feathers are wet in the one shot as she had just dived and picked up a mouse from the wet grass.

Hi David, hope you are keeping well ;) She's a beauty, really like #3 showing the wet feathers & bits of grass from feeding.
