Kestrels have remarkably keen eyesight even in extremely poor light, allowing them to hunt almost until dark.
Kestrels aren’t as big as they look. An adult weighs on average a mere 220gm, less than half the weight of a red-legged partridge.
Most kestrel nest failures occur during incubation; if eggs hatch, then it is most likely that some of the young will fledge.
Kestrels have been seen to rob sparrowhawks and both barn and short-eared owls of their prey.
The major cause of death among young kestrels is starvation: only 30-40% survive their first year.

Machimus (Tolmerus) atricapillus
Size: 15 mm

This grass spike was almost completely covered in noctuid (moth) eggs. I don't think this robber fly took much notice though.

Stacked from 10 natural light exposures in Zerene Stacker.

A few additional shots in the first comment, including one showing the setup.

In don't know, if you ever read or hear this book.This place remembered me of the ' Wind in the Willow'.It `s a book written around 1900 by Kenneth Grahame telling a story for children about the live in and around a river in England. With powerful eloquence and poesy!

This picture is made near by Villandry/ France and it is a billabong of the Loire, beautiful for canoeing.
