The fight in-flight of the Yellow Billed Kites

Air Combat

While at Tracy's parents on Christmas Day, we spotted a Yellow Billed Kite in a tree obviously with some (unidentified) prey it had caught. One of his mates decided we wasn't going to allow his friend to enjoy his meal in peace and swooped down on the lunch session. The result was this airborne tussle, it was over really quickly but miraculously I had the camera pointed in the right direction at the right time.
