User's notes

I don't think I'll ever forget this sighting from this morning. at least 12 Black Kites in a narrow thermal going round and round moving about 5 times before they disappeared. No breeding or feeding behaviour - not even chasing out the single Whistling Kite nor Little Eagle in there. Breathtaking to watch. Just wish they had been a little closer.
