WHERE KESTRELS DARE...

A year or so ago we walked the stretch of south west coast path from Trevone to Stepper Point on Cornwall`s north coast.   It`s yet another spectacular cliff top walk, rewarded with sweeping views across the Camel Estuary to Polzeath, Trebetherick and Pentire Point.   Stepper Point on the western head of the estuary is topped by a stone tower, built as a `day mark` to serve as a navigation beacon for seafarers during daylight.   

I can never resist the temptation to step inside the tower and peer through the lookout and feast my eyes on the ever changing seascape.  On this occasion, I was fascinated by the grace and beauty of the kestrel in its flight and I was lucky enough to capture this image as the kestrel hovered in search of lunch.......
