Kestrel and frog
9th September 2010. On the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust blog (see http://worcestershirewildlifetrust.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html:
'I was at Feckenham Wylde Moor as usual on the Wednesday work party. After lunch break I started to carry out that weeks butterfly recording and as I walked across Hill Piece I noticed our resident Kestrel perched on the wires that cross the meadow. After a few seconds he dropped down into the grass. I was surprised at how slowly he descended and so I walked nearer to see what he had spotted. As I approached he 'mantled' and as I got nearer he flew up. I noticed that he was carrying a large frog. He flew into the big Oak and proceeded to eat it where I took many photographs before he flew off with what was left of the prey'.
