Lots of raptors along Buckley Road. Don't forget your binoculars. Is it a female or male Kestrel that you are looking at? Get out the birding book and enjoy.
The name kestrel is given to several different members of the falcon genus, Falco. Kestrels are most easily distinguished by their typical hunting behaviour which is to hover at a height of around 10–20 metres (33–66 ft) over open country and swoop down on prey, usually small mammals, lizards or large insects. Other falcons are more adapted to active hunting on the wing. In addition, kestrels are notable for usually having much brown in their plumage. Kestrels do not build their own nests, but use nests built by other species.
