G'day all

I've rarely been out lately for various reasons but took the opportunity
yesterday to check a few of my regular spots in the Victoria Valley
(Grampians, western Victoria).  At Bryan Swamp there were three
Wedge-tailed Eagles on the lake shore that took off as I walked towards the
water.  Two soared off into the distance but one repeatedly flew over me at
close range.  Only about 2/3rds of the bird fitted into my 8x binocular
view so someone clever might be able to figure out how close it was.  It
was eyeballing me the whole time but wasn't threatening - just curious I

Quite a sight.
