Kestrels

Taking the back roads across to Colac this afternoon, I passed the Wurdiboluc Reservoir, south-east of Winchelsea (see map), and noticed a pair of Nankeen Kestrels in a tree just near one of the pedestrian entrances.



There's very little cover at the reservoir so I couldn't get much closer but a pair of fisherman walking along the track past this tree flushed the birds and one landed on a sign closer to me.

and then again flew over my head to land in another close tree.
