My GBS site was graced by a low flying wedge-tailed Eagle this morning.  It was flying low as both local magpie families (5 birds in total at present) were flying high above it and dive-bombing it mercilessly. 

Interestingly it is the second time I have seen magpies mobbing a specific tree in our neighbours block.  It has a nice view down a valley (and many lapine nutrients nearby) which might be atractive to a nesting wedgie if the residents would just settle down.
