Bird spotting

On the way to town...

a hawk of some sort, perched on an old weather vane, looking for lunch

we got way closer than I expected, it's a busy footpath along the top of the cliff, lots of undergrowth going down to the beach so plenty of lunch living there I should think.

I'm happy to be corrected, but judging by the vertical streaks on the chest and the chestnut back I'm thinking it's a female kestrel - do let me know if I'm right or wrong!

No help with the bird I'm afraid, but how great you could get so close.
