First Black Kite of 2013

That one sunny day ten days ago (yes, it has been snowing again since…) it was also the first day this year that I saw a Black Kite (milvus migrans – Schwarzmilan). The details of the head are a bit better in the enlarged photos.

Soaring above the Lake of Lucerne…

  1. Wow that picture where he is trying to get the fish is fabulous! Well done… If I see this bird over here, that would be a first for Iceland 😉
