Kestrel dining

The site kestrel is always watching, but today it was too busy to care what we were doing below the power lines!
Jamie heard a clicking sound and thought the kestrel was banging something against the ceramic insulators, it turned out to be a poor little bird alarming whilst being plucked :-(
I don' know what sort of bird the prey is, but it has yellow legs.
And, if you watch the video, you'll see the legs are the last mouthful - ugh!
