The West Coast National Park, seldom if ever gets attention, having just found a series of photographs that I had "lost" on my hard drive, will post a few over the next few days/weeks

Spring Flower time, amazing vista of colour

Yup, that's because this is a Yellow-billed Kite... :roll: :roll: :roll: Sorry, completely wrong call on the buzzard, also distracted by lack of V-shape. Compare your photos with these ones! (Here the bird is called Black Kite: same thing according to mosts taxonomists)
