Another Perch Success

 

On our morning perambulate around the meadows today, we saw a Kestrel perched on top of of one of the new Corsican Pines:

She flew down into the ditch of the new Butterfly Bank for a while and then leisurely flew along to our perch and posed nicely for the camera:

I watched and held my breath – I knew that this camera was running low on batteries – had they lasted until this moment?

And then she was off:

We collected the camera and uploaded the photos with great anticipation. Yes, it still had battery power but unfortunately there was dew on the lens. What a shame:

Meanwhile, on another camera that is trained on the Oilseed Rape seeds to see what is eating them, it is continuing to be Collared Doves, Blackbirds and Dunnocks that are coming:

But at night, this camera is getting triggered by all sorts of other animals :

Which is really rather wonderful.
