Had an interesting one tonight. During the twilight walk with the dog, I watched a kestrel through my binoculars, alternatively swooping and hovering at a distance of about 300 yards from me. Suddenly, against the clear evening sky, there was a bat fluttering around. The kestrel went into a stoop, caught it mid flight, and carried it to a nearby barn roof, where I lost sight of it in the gloaming.
Anyone else seen anything similar, it has never occurred to me that they would be kestrel fodder?!
Lovely to watch all the same.
