On the Hunt

A very photogenic raptor – The Black Shouldered Kite. There are at least a dozen of them at the Western Treatment Plant at the moment. They catch mice and other smaller prey. There must be quite of bit of food around for them as they have started to nest already and it is only mid-winter here in Southern Victoria.
