Coastal Hunters 20/08/15

A photographic record of the fascinating hour or so spent watching two members of our local avian special forces stalking, spotting and surprising their prey. 

Firstly a kestrel, battling with cross winds to maintain his hover over the coastal heath. Occasionally swooping before returning to his watchful and vigilant "spy in the sky" station in preparation for another graceful sky assault.

On the shoreline below, a silent stalker, striking Tai Chi poses, tiptoes through the shallows in search of who knows what.  The unsuspecting inhabitants of shallows beneath his feet, an unwitting prey to the master.
