Raptor? Dorrigo National Park, NSW, Australia (1 Viewer)

Hi, I took a photo of this bird back in mid-March 2006 and have never been able to identify it. It was so long ago I don't remember any of its behavior aside from it soaring overhead. Can someone help? Thank you!

Yes, definitely a Whistling Kite.
The Sandy coloured body and underwing pattern and long paddle-shaped tail are diagnostic.
