Kestrel


In case you've not seen it, there's a kestrel living on Hilly Fields. I saw it swooping menacingly over the uncut meadow area this morning, and then it helpfully sat on a lampost and allowed me to take a rather poor photo.
Apparently, they're not unusual in the middle of a city, but this is the first time I've seen one.
Obviously, the support for wildlife is paying off. Good stuff.

They are rather cute, aren't they?
We have been seeing kestrels, and possibly hobbies as well, quite a lot recently around the Catford gyratory, often perching on top of Catford library.
Also regular sightings of kestrels and probably sparrowhawks too at Forster Park.
