In medieval falconry, the common kestrel was reserved for the knave, reflecting its lowly status, but they are far from lowly! Majestic in flight, especially when hovering – which is where their alternative name ‘Windhover’ comes from. Kestrels are most easily distinguished by this typical hunting behaviour, which is to hover into a slight headwind over open country and swoop down on prey, usually small mammals.
