A Kestrel Displays

Glinting wingbeats sounding against a drum-tight, blindingly-bright sky.

Criss-crossing the southern morning, quicker than the
Blinking watering eye screwed against the molten sun.

Silhouetted in zig-zags until a hairpin bend turns it below the
Trees' horizon and only the jagged memory remains.
Known to follow bird waves.

Nice one H, cold temperatures and low bright sunlight definitely gets my eyes watering too!
