  3. Lawrie Conole  Actually - too hard to rule out Square-tailed Kite from Black Kite with the back lighting as it is. Some features suggest STQ - small head, rufous underparts, hint of a white wing window, tail more square than forked due to artefact of the light).

    • Andrew Brown  Thanks Lawrie, just looking through the other phots of both I'd go with Black Kite but it isn't a great shot for a positive id so I'll leave it as unknown.
