    ... well they are, aren't they. Such beautiful birds these Brahminy Kites. I just can't believe I was so lucky to have so many great views of these stunning raptors. Though this one only gave me a very brief opportunity through a small gap in the trees, a couple of clicks and he was gone...

    I couldn't leave that session without showing another picture of that beautiful kite. He put on such a wonderful show for us and I rather liked this flight pose too. I've asked in the ID forum re the white tail tip. I can't find this feature mentioned anywhere.

    .... from a rather extended display flight. So I got a picture of him perched.

    Apparently this guy used to be called a Red-backed Sea Eagle (at least according to my book), as it is found around the coast and part of its diet includes fish. He, and another, entertained us for a few minutes, so I'll probably show you another picture (or two) that I'm quite pleased with.

    We then watched this beautiful Brahminy Kite flying around. What a gorgeous bird and he was. Anyone interested, I've started a thread in the forum : https://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=383761

    Best of a bad bunch .

    First trip out for a couple of weeks and forgot to put the camera back on continuous focus. Lost focus while tracking a pair of these Kites and ended up with only one shot remotely in focus and acceptable . Always another time LOL and luckily it was just on my local patch .
