    it was a glorious day, hundreds of them flying over and another hundreds on the grounds or perched on trees, it seems that the 22nd was the day they arrive to that region. they usually spend the winter here in western Arabia. hope you like it.

    What's he got

    We passed the area of the road kill and continued along the main road, when yet another raptor attracted our attention. This time a Black Kite flying across the paddocks on our left. This pose seems to show him chewing his toes, or something he's holding.

  8. Perched


    With no opportunity of seeing any birds at the dry water hole we decided to walk back along the road (well it's still a dirt track) from the camp site. After about 15 minutes Adrienne and I really began to flag in the heat. So bravely Peter set off back to the cabin to fetch the car for us...

    Today has been one super day for birding, this was one of the first to visit my feeder after the grass was cut in the field. Kites, Buzzards, Kestrels and Sparrow Hawk to name a few Two cameras on the go loads of photos, more to follow.

    Is one of these kites a vampire?

    Two black kites arrived at the water-hole but there's only one reflection!
  12. Forked


    After exploring the evaporation ponds we then went to try the river from a parking area beside the bridge. We were still trying to acclimatise ourselves as to what was around when I spotted a Black Kite flying over. Quite high, but fairly pleased with the result.
  13. Another Kite

    Another Kite

    Shortly after taking the picture of the Whistler, this Black Kite flew across and landed in a tree not too far away from us.
  14. Consternation


    Suddenly all the birds rushed for a bit of cover and froze! Up in the air was a Black Kite with a Magpie-Lark mobbing him. I only managed this one picture before they got behind the roof of the garage. Quite pleased with the effort though.
