Kestrel hovering on high

Up on Babbacombe cliffs last Saturday was this kestrel.
Hovering high above.

Simply waiting and watching from up there, in its big bit of sky.

Hardly having to bat an eyelid (or a wing) Resting on the wind, but intensely alert.
Gimlet-eyed and focused for any little furries down below.

A free-wheeling wide-awake predator.
