There is a nesting white-bellied sea-eagle at Gum Swamp, Forbes as we speak.

Yes a very obvious (first immature) White-bellied Sea-Eagle. Lots of
features to id this as that one and not a WtE. Apart from the exposed tarsus
(diagnostic difference on its own) the general paler colour and all the
patterns, the very broad wings and shorter tail, Yes White-bellied Sea-Eagle
do occur a lot on inland waterways (are a regular in Canberra, Gum swamp in
Forbes, etc).

Looks like a White-bellied S-E in all details even the slightly longer
section of exposed tarsus.  I agree with Peter.  We have seen several adults
well inland in NSW & Vic recently. Cheers Mike Tarburton
