Cornish Kestrels part 23

All seems to be going well with our Kestrels,  With the female now half way through incubating her eggs, The male as seen below has been busy bringing in prey,  It seems to be a good year for lizards which are accounting for over fifty percent of kills,

In the shot below the male has delivered prey to the female and waits to see her response ?

And this time he is in luck as the female calls him to mate but they are both facing the wrong way for my camera !

Some times the time you put in gets its reward too, and in this case seven hours after I arrived the Kestrels turned around together to give me the shot below that I had been waiting for,

All good things come to an end and the final shot show the dismount and its now time for the female to get back to her eggs and the male might just catch another lizard before sunset.
