I stopped in numerous locations around Long Gully Lane and surrounds this afternoon, hoping to sight the (up to 11) Black Kites which have been reported around the area regularly particularly over the past two or so weeks.
I eventually sighted 1 Wedge-tailed Eagle and 1 Black Kite occasionally appearing over the top of the hill of the tip.
Later on, I stopped at the gate into Issacs Ridge on Mugga Lane just 100m north of the junction with Long Gully Rd. Here, I located 2 Black Kites fairly close up perched in a dead tree just across the road behind the tip fence in good light offering great views. Panicked Noisy Miners alerted to me a Brown Falcon flying low overhead from the tip into Issacs Ridge, and about 125 Silver Gulls were circling up high.
