Was on the way back from going to see a client in Sandwich, and as the bypass is closed and bit of a nightmare I came back via Preston.
On the way I saw this kestrel sitting on the telephone line so had to stop. I spent a good half hour watching him hunt hoping from one perch to another. Here are a few of my favourite hots I got.

My first Kingfisher pictures captured. I don't class myself as a bird photographer as I'm not sure I have the patience for it, but was determined to get a picture this morning of the kingfisher after many years of promising myself to get one.
After setting out before sunrise and nearly 3 hours of sitting in the hide freezing in -2C I eventually got these shots, click here to view.
The Goldfinches were going bananas today, turned out it was fledging day, so had to keep the cats inside as little Goldfinch chicks were in the garden with the parents trying to get them to fly. One even flew into my office by mistake.
It was a good excuse to get some close up pictures, here are just a few of the many I took.
