Kestrel

I took another trip to Burton Marshes on Tuesday, and was rewarded with a prolonged hunting display from one of the local kestrels. The light conditions weren't ideal, but I managed to take some pretty nice photos (if I do say so myself):

Spotted something!
...Down for a closer look!
...Closer!
...Checking through the corner of its eye (i.e. its second, higher-definition fovea)—I think!
...Get ready!
...SWOOP!
...Ga! Missed!
