Kestrel eating prey
Kestrels are found in a wide variety of habitats, from moor and heath, to farmland and urban areas. The only places they do not favour are dense forests, vast treeless wetlands and mountains.
They have adapted readily to man-made environments and can survive right in the center of cities.
Kestrels are masters of stationary flight, and hover-hunt extensively.
With their keen eyesight, sharp talons and strong beak, kestrels are well adapted to catching small agile prey.
For example things like small mammals and birds, worms and insects.
