Another name is Nankeen Kestrel.

We went to a small Raptor Flight Show which was fantastic!

Seems like a very proud bird. That first shot with him "standing tall" and chest all puffed out is very cool.

Beautiful detail MA, and what do the males look like, lots of colour as ours are, or not?

Well I thought this was a male myself, but I'm sure I heard the handler say she was female. Looking in my book there doesn't appear to be much difference other the male being a bit darker.
