Spanish Birding – Black Kite – 19th May 2011

For the whole trip we could come up with a list of five or so birds that we saw daily and in most environments, Greenfinch, White Stork, Swallow, Bee-eater & Black Kite!

Black Kites patrol everywhere in Donana and quickly became part of the skyline,  just occasionally you find one at rest on a pylon or in tree and these occasions make for the best photographic opportunities.
