Kestrel warming

Standing at the door of Loch Cottage a female Kestrel suddenly flew in and onto the roof of the cottage! The temperatures are about -4 and lower, so no doubt it was trying to get some warmth from the sun, out of the wind. A rare chance for such a close up picture.

The amazing view from the doorway of the cottage where we are staying.
