Red Footed Falcon. Bedfordshire. 2008

I went back to see the red footed' again only the weather wasnt great and the wind had gotten up, so after just a quick flyby of the falcon on arrival and no more sign for over an hour i decided to head off and look for dragonflies. And luckily for me i did, i caught a glimpse of a hobby flying into a wooded area and decided to scan the trees. it was then i spotted the red footed' perched up looking around. I managed to get closer and began taking some shots, the view was restricted at times with the wind blowing the leaves and branches, but it was seen well enough and preening too. I did not see it again once it flew off or mixed in with the 7+ hobbies but it was reported later on. A cracking bird and nicer to see perched up rather than with a suns glare upon it.
