Birds of Prey at Werribee


A wet and gloomy day at the Western Treatment Plant which only got worse as the day went on. It seemed that behind every bush was a bird of prey of some description, often taking flight before I had even seen them.

The last photo was taken from about 200 metres away and has been severely cropped to show a Black Shouldered Kite attacking a Black Falcon over the Paradise Road lagoons.

  1. Well you had something to take home despite conditions Wampy. I love the brown falcon pik 2 in particular. And what a great record - I wouldn't have thought that a BSK had that much attitude!

    And hey, ALL my pictures are severely cropped! Ha Ha :)

    1. pity the BSK was so far away, couldn't get a proper focus lock on it

  2. Awesome pics! Especially like the Kite on the dead branch.
