Back to Clougha.

A few images of the other birds on the Clougha fells that I managed to capture while I was after the red grouse.There were a pair of stonechat back on territory but I only managed to capture images of the female,while sat down having a drink a meadow pipit landed a few yards away and I rattled a few shots off.On my way home I saw a kestrel hovering and by the time I had managed to stop a beautiful male had dived into the field and caught a beetle [I think] I photographed it handheld through the passenger window and am pleased with the results.I've posted a couple of images of each bird below for your enjoyment.

Nice change of imagery Martin and 'the boy done well' with that kestrel.

Excellent Kestrel images Martin - you don't see many shots of the bird that particular pose. Lovely colours on the stonechat and MP shots.
