This one is male. The males are distinguished by grey heads, black spotting and a mustache stripe. The Lesser Kestrel is a small falcon. This species breeds from the Mediterranean across southern central Asia to China and Mongolia. It is a summer migrant, wintering in Africa and Pakistan and sometimes even to India and Iraq. Despite its outward similarity, this species appears not to be closely related to the Common Kestrel.
Wonderful photographer and wonderful lesser kestrels are both ready to be introduced. Unbelievable colours I think and unbelievable contrast between female (with grey head) and male (spotted) lesser kestrels.
