It's winter down under and bird life is quiet. But at this Ramsar-listed wetland a couple of raptors posed obligingly.

The first is a Black Kite. Light has to be good with this bird or else it looks muddy. It did two fly-pasts for me. Second is an Australian Hobby, which is a falcon.

The Hobby has a typical glare ...
