Hi all

Have just returned from a non birding holiday in Europe but still managed to 
see a number of good birds none the less. Amongst those i couldnt id, mostly 
due to inexperience or lack of a conclusive view was an Elanus type kite near 
Barcelona, quite similar to a black shouldered kite except perhaps a bit greyer 
but still typically distnctive. It isnt covered in the field guide I have which 
was more for northwest europe. If anyone could reply to me off list what it is 
likely to be I would be very appreciative. Will write a little more when I have 
had some sleep ;-) (And waded through 500 odd birding aus emails!)

TIA, Cheers
