The Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) is a bird of prey species belonging to the kestrel group of the falcon family Falconidae. It is also known as the European Kestrel, Eurasian Kestrel[1], or Old World Kestrel[2]. In Britain, where no other brown falcon occurs, it is generally just called "the Kestrel".

Hi Robi,
this is an amzing shot with a great pose.
The building in the background is a bit unfortunate but nothing a cloning software can't sort out.
Well done,
Joey

Bonjour Robi,
Bon retour sur TN. Retour en force, avec un cliché impressionnant et très dynamique, bien maîtrisé.
Amicalement,
Hervé

Hi
It is defenitely a alrge falcon, could be a hybrid Saker. Anyway it is a falconers bird wearing leather and rings.

bonjour robi

Salut Robi et bon retour :) C'est une impressionnante capture en vol de ce magnifique prédateur. L'image est bien nette et tu as capturé une pose des plus intéressantes.J'aime bien ces ruines aussi qui ajoute un élément insolite à l'image. J'ai eu la chance de voir plusieurs oiseaux de proie récemment mais je n'ai jamais réussi une telle photo. Bravo!
