Falco naumanni

No: RĂždfalk, Eng: Lesser kestrel, It: Grillaio

Dear All,
This is from Harald and my trip to Extremadura, three days in May/June.
Altogether we saw about 85 different species, many of them new to me.

The Lesser Kestrel lives in the cities, as these in the church tower in a small village.
First the female, then the male.

It is common folklore that you cannot shoot birds in action with a manual focus lens. Hereby disproven.
