Taking over a New Habitat

These "hawks" where very busy every morning over the new open pit, being dug by Bootu Creek resources. They seemed to be eating the things attached to eat the hundreds of moths that where attracted to the lights at night. Checking an old copy of Neville Cayley's "What Bird is That?" I wasn't able to make a positive identification but they most closely resemble the fork-tailed kite (Milvus migrans affinis. also known as the black kite in europe and africa )
