Lunchtime near Cape Solander in the Botany Bay NP produced a mature
White Bellied Sea Eagle, clutching something in its Talons flying past,
it seemed a bit laboured, not the normal easy soaring, it flew inland
after following the cliffline for a short while.  

This was quickly followed by about 30 yellow tailed black cockatoos
which flew over in 2 groups, headed across the entrance to the bay
towards La Perouse.

I was also entertained by what appeared to be a bush rat scuttling
around in the heath, possibly attracted by the prospect of scavenging
some of my lunch.  Seemed a bit odd to see a rat out about like that at
