Lesser Kestrel

Lesser Kestrel

Falco naumanni

Bob Flood first saw this mega sat on a flag post on the Golf Course on St Mary's, Isles of Scilly a few weeks before this footage was taken. It looked really good for a first-summer male Lesser, but quickly disappeared. It was eventually found out that the Lesser went to Peninnis at the other end of St Mary's, depending on wind direction. Bob eventually relocated it near the Golf Course. It was a genuine mega being the first twitchable British occurrence and so at the time it attracted many 100s of birders from the mainland.

This film was made om May 14th 2002 on the Golf Course on St Mary's, Isles of Scilly, and it remained until at least May 21st. It was the 16th record in Britain and it was filmed by Bob Flood.
