Kestrels on Roundshaw

After a period of almost 2 weeks of not seeing the kestrels, we’re now seeing pretty much everyday and now see them hunting, rather than just perching in the trees. If you’ve never seen a kestrel hovering as it spots prey and then swooping down to pounce, then I have to tell you that it’s a magnificent sight.

At the weekend we even saw the male catch what appeared to be a small lizard or maybe a newt and eat it whilst stood on a fence post.
