Author's notes

The kestrel was present throughout the 2-2.5hrs of my visit. The first picture of it is on a fence post feeding on an insect possibly a Giant green slant face grasshopper which was also sighted later in my visit. Location is approximate as it wasn't GPSed. The second photo is of it in a Eucalypt tree further west near the entrance at the corner of Amy Witting and Judith Wright St.
