Black Kite: Working a light air

Black Kite, Milvus migrans


Working over a recently harvested paddock in a light breeze the huge tail, normally in a "V" is fanned out to get the most of breeze. I sometimes think they use that wide tail to 'row' themselves along as it constantly flicks from side to side.
