A Colourful Snack

Something else trying to get in on the act
In this monochrome world - we're covered in a blanket of snow with accompanying freezing fog - here's a bird which is usually a welcome splash of colour. Long before the recent snow this Kingfisher found itself providing a welcome meal for a male Kestrel. Kestrels generally eat small mammals, but this bird may have taken advantage of a Kingfisher flying into a plate-glass window. All these pictures were taken through glass, which makes their quality all the more remarkable. Thanks to course member Jackie Dawson for bringing her husband's interesting pics to my attention. Hope you enjoy your Christmas meals, as much as this Kestrel enjoyed his!
