Jeff Penfold, from Bexhill, took the picture on the Knepp Castle Estate in West Sussex recently. He said: “I was at the Knepp rewilding project photographing the White Storks and this Kestrel effectively photo-bombed.”

The picture was featured on BBC local news as their ‘picture of the day’. Jeff has a well deserved reputation for his Sussex wildlife pictures. Many of them are featured on a calendar that is produced every year to help the Sussex charity he supports – Charity for Kids.
