Venus Pool - Kestrel posing

Sunday morning and my only chance to get out and about......I'd hoped to add more images of the VP Bittern today but a Water Rail was all I had to show for over an hour of patience!

If it wasn't for the female Kestrel hunting along the road, the morning would have ended without any more pictures! No Gulls of note at Priorslee and not a sign of Crossbill at Shirlett....

February and March sees (for me) limited opportunities for bird photography but keep looking - you never know what I'll drop in on during those snatched moments!


  1. Very nice kestrel shots - especially the semi-punk hairstyle of the second one!

  2. Brilliant pictures yet again, I visited VP to try and see the Bittern but failed! I have seen a small white Egret today - couldnt say exactly what type, but it was around all day. Is this normal for Shropshire?
