A juvenile White-bellied Sea Eagle was chased from Point Hut Pond today Sunday by Magpies and a mystery bird.  The third chaser in the second photo looks like a Masked Lapwing to me but interested in any alternative views. 

If you honked me while I was taking photos, I have to admit I didn't see who it was but guess the Castle Hill excursioners?




I believe I saw an adult WBSE flying down the valley of the Cotter R, just above where it becomes the dam lake, last Wednesday. No binoculars and the camera was in the car.  Lots of white and very large. It flew straight along above the river for about 200m, it too was being chased by black and white birds.  If it was a Sea Eagle it definitely wasn't the same bird as shown here, much more white (and black).
