Snow, and yes, the black kite is still here..

Snow has been falling most of the day but its not amounting to much yet. About 1/2 inch was on the feeding field when I went down there today. 

Its a dark and gloomy day and my attempts to capture a meaningful photograph of the black kite came to nought despite the bird coming around in front of the hides at least 3 times.

This kite has picked up the methods used by the more seasoned visitors to the feeding area - it is now taking food from the ground at the first attempt and feeding in front of the hides, rather than stealing the fruits of other kites labours.

This image of the Black kite feeding was taken by Philip Neale on Sunday.
