Kestrel chasing Wren

A foraging Wren in the middle of a field made the mistake of emerging from the snow just as a Kestrel passed low over the field. A chase began and with the Kestrel winning the sprint the Wren decided to plunge head first into the snow. The Kestrel then began diving into the snow forcing the Wren to make a life saving effort to fly the last 30 metres to safety. It made it.
