Just too much, fine light, a great afternoon and a Brown Falcon that seemed to relish the warm weather.
This is the bird that is one of the pair at one end of the paddock from Kitty and Kalav.
The rich evening light really seems to make your average Brown Falcon glow, and this bird is not average.
But, the Kites, Magpies, Wagtails, Magpie-larks and Ravens all take exception to its presence.
The pair were hunting for mice and had developed, I think, a strategy to deal with the harassment.
While one bird hunted on the ground, (Browns are good at this), the other flew slowly up and down to attract all sorts of attention. Leaving the bird on the ground free to hunt. And, successful she was.
