Short Eared Owl vs Kestrel !!! (Axe Wetlands)

As soon as I was out of work after other work, I raced over to Black Hole Marsh to see the SEO which had been hanging around all day. With no sign of it between 18:00 and 19:00 I joined Dad to help him ID a saw-billed duck which he'd found from Tower Hide. It was a female Goosander:

A Kestrel diving at a landed SEO was a spectacular end to the evening. The photos were rubbish as the Sun had set and the birds were distant. Fantastic to witness though.

More pics of this exchange to come!
