Wandered over to the meadow to see the wildlife information board, and got a real treat: a Kestrel
I first spotted it sitting on a lamppost, and edged cautiosly closer to get a better photo.
Then it spotted me and flew off into a tree beside the school.
I walked slowly towards the tree, keeping to the footpath that curves up towards the playground and when I was nearly at the junction of paths it swooped down to catch something, probaby a mouse, in the undergrowth at the edge of the meadow.
I grabbed two more photos as the Kestrel ripped apart its catch
...and another as it flew away.
