Fishing Red Kite

Black Kite
(Milvus migrans)

On the road to the Castle of Monfrague there is a small dam that crosses the river Tietar. This place is ideal for photography of mid-sized raptors like this Black Kite, who was fishing in the river. It has a small fish in its beak.

En la carretera al Castillo de Monfragüe hay una pequeña presa que cruza el rio Tietar. El lugar es ideal para fotografía de rapaces de mediano tamaño como este Milano Negro, que estaba pescando el rio. Tiene un pequeño pez en el pico.
