Ups and downs

I sadly came across this Brown Falcon earlier in the week – a road kill casualty on the Moolort Plains. This species is susceptible to collisions as it often flies low to the ground when hunting.

Happily, a few minutes later I spotted another, this time in fine fettle – it posed briefly before heading off towards the sunset.
