Following on from yesterdays story regarding Black-shouldered Kites at Glengower, here is what happened next.
Both immature kites perched at the top of a dead pine, calling loudly to the adults, one of which still had the unfortunate mouse.
One of the immatures flew up behind the circling adult, which passed the prey over … I was too slow to capture the actual transfer!
The youngster then appeared to try and swallow the mouse, eventually returning to the perch, rejoining its sibling.
What a privilege to witness another of nature’s little cameos!
