While a bunch of us were doing butterfly surveys on Mt Majura this morning we had a rather dramatic encounter. We heard and then saw two Glossies flying in from the north, a fast-flying Wedge-tailed Eagle then came into view and appeared to attack the Glossies which took evasive action. The eagle kept going and the Glossies settled in the top a nearby eucalypt where we were able to get some photos before they flew off, back in the direction they had come from.


This was at the junction of the Casuarina Trail and the management track that goes to the summit.
