Thanks TK....my favourite too. He's a cheeky fellah and has around 90% success rate catching bread on the wing.

Great shots Ben :^

I saw a couple of Kestrels today but they were not close enough for a photo.

+1 Superb!

Never taken a single Kestrel photo, even though I see them regularly around here. Fascinating birds to watch but never seem to have a camera at the time. Same with flying swans and cormorants. See them every day but always when I have put the camera down.

Thanks tout le monde;

with the benefit of hindsight ...my only tip is that if you see one, note where it was and go back regularly because unsurprisingly,  they tend to hunt the same territory. Also, they appear to be systematic/planned about covering the ground when hunting, so watch the direction/pattern and they should repeat and eventually come to hover right over you, as long as you've stood in the path of their hunt of course.  Not sure if this is true of all raptors, but it has been my personal experience with Kestrels.

While I was in Calpe, I went to the salt flats, to see  Flamingoes.
