Black Kite - Dhahran Hills

As I am out of Saudi Arabia for the Christmas break I will post a few details of some birds of prey I saw in the spring before I started my blog. Black Kite was the most common large bird of prey seen by me in the spring of 2011, although they were by no means common. The photograph of the bird below was taken by me at the spray fields on 27th May 2011.
