Dead Black Kite, Cranley, Toowoomba.

A related update on my previous post of the numerous black kites at Cranley, north Toowoomba.

Last weekend we were at the life line refuse shop located near the Bedford st tip and again noticed the Black Kites circling in the vicinity. Sadly we noticed one dead one on the grass in the paddock next to the lifeline yard. We wondered if it could have come in contact with something hazardous at the tip?
