Common Kestrel?
2

Caught this fine bird sitting up in a tree two days ago, basking in the evening sun:

I do think that its a Common Kestrel - a Lesser Kestrel or a Red-Footed Falcon would be unusual in the middle of Germany, but the claws seem to miss the typical black ends; a bit hard to tell though because they are partially obscured by the branches in the foreground. What do you think? And if it is a Common Kestrel - male or female? Hard to discern from this point of view IMO.

Thanks for your help!

Phil
