Blackshouldered kites in Mulgoa Valley.

Dear All,
A (presumed) pair of Blackshouldered kites have returned to Mulgoa Valley, along with many other seasonal birds, it has been a lush season. They disappear,likely migrating north, during the colder months. although we are still having frosts. Does anyone know of specific northern areas where they congregate ?
BSKites are beautiful, delicate birds, almost fragile, wonderful hoverers,
seem to live on grasshoppers, lizards and mice. Like other beautiful BOPs their calls are harsh.
Various sub spp occur throughout S Asia and S Europe, migrate to Africa, indistinguishable from one another to the casual observer. From afar, in Oz, they could be confused with Letterwinged kites during inland droughts.

Best. Michael
