Yellow-Billed Kite In Flight

Yellow-Billed Kite In Flight
These Yellow-Billed Kites – Milvus aegyptius parasites - were always flying around our hotel chasing and being chased by Hooded Vultures, both species nesting in or near the hotel grounds. This, I think, is probably the best flight shot I got of the Kites because, as I discovered when reviewing my shots later, for some reason there is light on its underside (possibly reflected off the pool) showing lots of detail. Taken in the grounds of the Laico Atlantic Hotel, Banjul, The Gambia.
