I waited for an age to see if he would punce on whatever he was watching. Bugger didn’t though..

In fact, I think it is a Nankeen Kestral for those of you who like things to be identified just so.

Gobbo 11:34 am 29 Oct 10

It’s a Kestral.

Difficult to say as he’s only a young one.

Although he could be a black kite.

Love the pic, especially against the dark blue sky with whisps of cloud.
