Black Kite

Black Kites approaching from the Caucasus with Mt Elbrus visible in top left corner. A record 180,000 recorded, about 50,000 more than last autumn. 

Adult. Light rain brought many late afternoon Black kites low into the valley resulting in a presumed massacre behind Station 1.

The Black Kite migration was one of the 2016 autumn highlights. They just kept on coming.


Almost certainly has had its tail shot off
