Cornish Kestrel part 24

Vole prey hand-0ver,

Our kestrels have settled into a routine of incubation on the part of the female and prey supply to the female by the male on a regular basis,  In the image below the male returns skilfully displaying his prey as he lands,

 The female takes the offering and departs immediately to consume it on her own
 The male watches her depart then flies off to find his own dinner

This pattern of behaviour will continue until the chicks hatch any day now freeing up both birds to share in hunting and feeding the new arrivals,
