The Kestrel, part of the falcon family is a familiar sight around the Flinders Ranges.

They are most likely to be noticed hovering 10 or twenty metres above the ground looking for their prey, lizards, insects and small mammals.

They need a bit of a headwind to get into the hover position but it is interesting to watch them at work as can be seen in this picture I posted some time ago.

There are also new images in the Overflow and a couple of new sections added to Gallery called Flora and Fauna and General Pictures.
