This is almost my best picture of these kestrels that I had near my house, unfortunatly I didn't get the tip of the wing at the bottom and I was very sorry about that, however I chose to upload it because of the good details.

The Kestrel is about 33 - 39cm (13 - 15") .

Scientific name: Falco tinnunculus

Habitat: Found in a wide variety of haunts including open or lightly wooded farmland, moors, wetlands and urban areas.

Description: Female slightly larger than male. Both are brownish on the upperparts, the male being more rufous and has blue-grey head and tail. Hovers frequently and indeed, is probably most often seen hovering alongside motorway and road verges.

Clone and crop

Lamentably, the original photo had an incomplete wing.
I extended the size of the paper, clone the color of sky and one of the ends of the pens.
Finally I cropped a fragment of the superior sky.
I hope you like it.
