Could be a Square-tailed Kite –  a long way up circling for dinner – and could be this guy captured on other days.

This large bird is (I think) a Square-tailed Kite, it is a common site in the sky when I’m out walking in the evening. These are large kites between 50-55 cm and one of the long-winged raptors that like to spend their time soaring up high over the treetops. This one was a good distance away when I managed to take this photo. They can range in an enormous territory, up to 100 sq km and live in most parts of Australian.
