Firstly may I say thank you to everyone who left the very kind comments concerning our recent loss they were greatly appreciated.
Also sorry for the lack of posts and not visiting your blogs and leaving comments, the reason for this is that a couple of weeks ago I was checking some of the images on my blog and when I clicked on some of them a warning message from Microsoft appeared say that this web site was unsafe and could retrieve personal information about you and to leave it immediately.
Needless to say I was very concerned about this, I know my PC is ok as I have two separate lots of virus software scanning at different times and no problems have been reported.
But thinking about it the blog site comes under the control of Google and if something got through their checks it would be beyond my control.
I did inform google about this but have not received any reply, so to make sure I have not visited any blogs for the past couple of weeks for fear of causing others problems.
The bottom line is that I came on this morning with the intention of deleting my blog, but checking through I cannot get this message to come up, so I am wondering if there was a glitch in the system and perhaps it has been sorted.
I would really appreciate anyone letting me know if they get this message up as I will not visit any ones blog until I am sure its ok.

So onto the post content, Mark and I went to Godrevy Yesterday ad found this Kestrel sitting on a fence post, managed to get to within 4 metres of it and it was not the least bit concerned.
This resulted in the best Kestrel images I have ever taken, so below are three of the many I took.

Footnote   I have explored this message and its a problem with Microsoft Internet Explorer issuing false warnings the best cure is to run Google Chrome or Firefox as your browser.
So I am running Chrome and if the problem persists will switch over to Firefox as I have both on my PC.


  1. These are stunning Monty,in fact the best I've seen.
    Wish I came across this one.
    Hope to do some birding soon,after Sue gets better,she's not very well at the mo.

  2. Sorry you have been having computer problems Monty, what a pain! I think it was very considerate of you to be concerned about 'infecting' other's blogs. However, it looks like it was a microsoft glitch, I am on Firefox so no probs but I have checked your site on IE and no sign of a problem there either. It must have been worrying and I am so glad you didn't have to close your blog!

    Now! These photos are absolutely fabulous Monty!!! They really are superb, am I envious?...YES :) How wonderful to get so close, it must have been a very special moment!

  3. Sorry about the loss of your sister. Write down you memories as that is a way to enjoy her life with joy.

    Fantastic pictures. Birds of prey are always fun to capture.

  4. First of all let me say these pictures are amazing, what a beautiful bird :)
    In regards to the message you received...I too have gotten that screen on my own blog! I was totally shocked when it happened. I immediately closed my browser, and have been unable to find the reason for it appearing. Everything on my PC seems to be okay. If I find anymore info, I'll let you know :)

  6. Those Kestrel images are stunning what great images to return to your blog with the first is sublime.

  7. Beautiful images Monty. Stunning!

  8. These IE glitches can be a pain but usually sort themselves out eventually.

    Great shots of the confiding Kestrel. Have a good week my friend.

  9. Superb, the first is outstanding.
