During the week on one of my excursions to Loop Head, I took in Kilcredaun Marsh to search for the two Blue-winged Teals that were there a few days previous.  While searching from the road on the east side of the marsh, this young Kestrel came close to my jeep and began diving into the grass to catch beetles and other small invertebrates.  The bird was oblivious of myself and the jeep and continued feeding along the roadside.
