Black Kites Milvus migrans have appeared in increasing numbers over recent years, part of a pattern of a southward shift/range extension of this widespread raptor. Black Kites have an almost global distribution and are typically associated with human habitation, sometimes congregating in their thousands around abattoirs and rubbish dumps, where they scavenge for food. To date I haven’t any reports of them breeding in the Newstead area, but the behaviour of this pair spotted near Picnic Point last weekend suggests that such an observation would not be unexpected.
