Black shouldered kite from today. Taken at the local Sewerage Treatment Plant which has the distinction of being only second to Kakadu(NT) for greatest no of bird species in one place in Australia ( 250+) . Stunk like hell today I think due to Green Algae in ocean near shore but who cares if its great for birdlife... Although these kites are more attracted to field mice than they are anything to do with the added "nutrients" in the water:)

You did very well to get the pair together. People fail to understand how difficult that is!
