Hi All,


We visited and had a fantastic morning with the Peregrine Falcons this morning. Plenty of flight action.


One thing we witnessed and it happened extremely quickly and took us completely by surprised. We noticed one falcon had gone into a vertical dive down from the cliff top and then we saw a White-bellied Sea Eagle extremely low heading upstream with the falcon doing a bit of a tussle with it. It got away and continued on its way. Sometime later it cruised back downstream past us but I was not ready nor did I anticipate it. I just threw the camera up and fired off a couple of shots from the hip without thinking. They are somewhat blurry but you will get the idea. You can see one of the falcons coming in for this pass. It was something to behold.
