KESTREL


KESTREL, originally uploaded by cnlizziebns.

Was judging a cross country jump at an EFA event and in between horses taking the jump (an oxer, made of logs, note the rope holding it together) caught a photograph of this bird of prey which I believe to be a Kestrel would fly down and sit until the next horse came by and seemed to be entertained by the activities. After the event the ibis and magpies came out also. The galloping horses must disturb mice and insects. I can imagine them thinking oh great a feast is happening look at all those horses that will clump about today.....yippee
