KESTREL AT ROSSALL.

Back in August I visited Rossall Point to see how many waders had returned from their breeding grounds,as I walked through the sand hills I was amazed to see a kestrel land on the green of the golf course while the golfers were playing and started catching beetles and bugs.
 After watching this amazing sight I returned with my camera to be met with a few local wildlife photographers and we decided to keep the news as quite as possible.Unfortunately the kestrel was quite a celebrity with the local golfers and dog walkers and after about a week the kestrel disappeared,most of the photographers have a strong opinion of what happened but no proof.
 This was a once in a lifetime experience and long will the memories of this young kestrel be with us all.I`ve posted a few images below and will do another post soon on this wonderful photogenic young bird.

Your brilliantly illustrated tale about this Kestrel is intriguing. I'm sincerely hoping I've not misinterpreted the cryptic....'most of the photographers have a strong opinion of what happened'....Martin.
