Perhaps someone can assist with the Identification of this one sighted around 13 Boorgat? I think it's a breeding Gymnogene due to the red face but not too sure............................

Image

Perhaps it's face is red from flying over this vulture nest :naughty: :naughty:

Thanks in anticipation.
