I couldn't resist yet another picture of a Kestrel, but I liked the way this female was showing its bright yellow feet. Although they are quite numerous in the area, this one was on the Lees, this morning, I see far more Sparrowhawks in the garden. Yesterday a Kestrel spent some time hovering over the front garden, although it didn't drop down in pursuit of any prey.
I watched a pair of Blue Tits in the garden feeding on this Birch tree. Much of the tree seems to have suddenly died, there were very few leave on it this year, and I've no idea why. The Tits were feeding up and down the trunk, one of them doing a good imitation of a Treecreeper for a while.
