A White-bellied Fish Eagle in Wagonga, NSW, Australia. A very good blogging friend kindly took me on a river cruise here and on the way back we saw this beauty in the eucalyptus tree surveying his territory.
Almost A Black and White Sunday
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude

Good to get up so close to that eagle, Jude.
Best wishes, Pete. x
He’s a beauty. I have seen a fish-eagle only once before, flying alongside the jeep I was in on the seventy-mile beach in Queensland. A huge bird!
I love to see one of the larger predators, always get a thrill hearing and seeing buzzards overhead here.
The larger native raptor breeds here are mainly extinct, and the remaining, smaller breeds endangered (and nocturnal), so we don’t get many sightings. Except swamp harriers, which seem to be prolific and are magnificent.
He looks like he is in charge!
I was thrilled to have him pointed out to me. Hiding in the Eucalyptus tree I would not have spotted him.
A trip with Meg? 🙂 🙂 Great shot and a little different from your current whereabouts. Happy Sunday!
It was indeed. And yes, very different to here – pouring with rain again!
I’m just about to venture forth again. 🙂 🙂 We did the last Todos a Caminhar walk of the year in mild drizzle this morning. I looked very dashing in a red plastic cape. 🙂 Mild though- 15.5C and it’s brightened up now so we’re off to the Christmas fair at Faro with Marie. Ho ho ho!
You are unstoppable like that Duracell bunny! Mild drizzle would be welcome – been pouring it down all morning again. Garden looks like brown mush 😦 Not particularly cold here though, unlike the north.
Lovely sunny afternoon in Faro. So quiet! Sat by the marina with the naughtiest of cakes. Well, i did have exercise this morning 🙂
I had no idea you got such a good shot of the eagle. A bit of a shock to see “Wagonga” in your post!
I was surprised it came out so well as he was quite well hidden! A lovely day. I remember it well 🙂
I do too. Your stay here was a delight – even if we did meet on the Internet!
Yes! We did get on very well though 🙂 As if we’d known each other for years.
