Taking an evening flight

I got bogged down fitting new kitchen appliances today but just manage to get to the coast to watch a male Kestrel taking an evening flight along the clifftops just before sunset,  The beauty of this particular bird was evenly matched by its casual but skillful flight as it used a light easterly breeze to its advantage,  Its ever changing posture also created dramatic highlights and shadow from the low sunlight as it hunted for a vole for supper before continuing out of sight.
