kestrel set... '' Explored '' ..BBC Autumnwatch Favourite

This is the final shot but the sequence is shown below ..did not start off well ....first pic shows the bird hidden in a tree and second shows he moment the bird decided to fly to that point were not too good but to my great relief he only flew about 20 yards and landed on an old post near me ...!!!

I think this bird is one of the young I have captured before and was hoping to see one or two of them but not expecting to get this pose !!!.........
