Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus)

This morning as, I partook in my daily yoga based stretches outside, taking full advantage of the beautiful sunshine, I was serenaded by two Kestrels (Falco tinnunculus) in the trees of our field.

Whilst I couldn’t really see them, only glimpse of their courtship display flight when it appeared over the garden hedge, but their chatter was loud and constant and filled the sky. It made me pause to just listen . . . it’s probably a little late in the season to be mating for another brood, but it has been very warm, in the 20s everyday for weeks now, so maybe more chicks will be on the way.

The sheer wonder of nature yet again infiltrating my daily life, such things make my day, and these two will resonate with me the whole day, love it and appreciate how lucky I am! Beautiful moments stay with you . . .
