Brahminy kite startles cormorants

While waiting for dolphins at Fingal last year, a group of three little black cormorants  were quietly watching the waves from the basalt columns.

Suddenly a beautiful brahminy kite appeared above us.

He delighted us but startled the cormorants by suddenly plunging to the water to catch his dinner

I tend to think of Fingal as the Gold Coast before it became the Gold Coast (although there are a few natural parts of the Gold Coast as well).
