255/365 – Bird Bird Birds

We spent most of the day dodging rain clouds as we traipsed around Bolton Abbey, nr Skipton in North Yorkshire. The ruin is technically a priory founded in the 12th Century and is the subject of many photos, but not mine on this particular day.  Instead took my 400mm F/4 prime lens hopeful for some wildlife along the edge of the river’s Wharfe.    When the sun briefly poked through the clouds, the kestrel (pictured) flew onto a branch above us, ruffled his obviously drenched feathers and catch a few rays.  Awww!

  1. Wow Amy, talk about being in the right place at the right time, fantastic shot of kestrel

    • I know!!! My only grumble is that the sky wasn’t blue with fluffy white clouds! Guess you can’t have everything!
