Almost A Black and White Sunday

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.

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.

    1. 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!

      1. 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.

      1. 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!

        1. 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.
