I came across this wonderful Kestrel today whilst having a stroll along the river wall (was not working so actually quite relaxing) and it allowed a wonderfully close approach as it first caught and then dispatched a shrew on the path before hovering above me while it looked for dessert! Russ and Dave must have followed along behind me and got far better flight shots than mine.
Super cute (all by me)

A few waders around again today including 4 Little Ringed Plover, 40 Ringed plover, Greenshank, 2 Ruff, 2 Black-tailed Godwit, 2 Green Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper, Whimbrel and 2 Oystercatcher, while a juvenile Marsh Harrier and Buzzard were also seen hunting the river wall together later in the day. Hopefully there will be some pictures of them too!
