There were at least half a dozen kestrels flying around nearby this afternoon - fascinating to watch and not easy to catch given the speed of their manoeuvres !

Such beautiful birds! And great photos.
I might have mentioned before, our last house here was on a steep slope, and we had a balcony above the valley. In a tree opposite, at our eye-level, we watched some kestrels build a nest and hatch out some babies.
Only in France!

Thank you, Papi and Pat :)
There were some twitchers about with huge spotting scopes - it can be a brilliant bird-watching place. I could see several egrets/white herons/ibis across the polders near the shore but they were far too far away to snap, unfortunately.
