Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus)

4th January 2012

First posting of the year with Common Kestrel, uncommon winter visitor in my place mostly seen at Tempasuk and Penampang paddy field, this time, fellow birder, Wan Iskandar saw it at Alam Mesra residential area and seen few times on top of the street light scanning for its prey.

According from Quentin Philipps's book, there were 6 Falco species migrating in Borneo and only 1 being a resident the Peregrine Falcon Falco peregrinus ernesti. 

Will try to get better pictures soon with the gang depending with the weather condition ...

Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope EDG85 via FSA-L2 DSLR Photo Adapter via Nikon D300s

Happy birding !
