White-bellied Sea Eagle

Outside enjoying the last of the days sun around 3:20pm we heard an almighty commotion. All the surrounding birds went into alert mode. Up rose a beautiful White-bellied Sea Eagle, riding the thermals and chased by several noisy miners. It banked higher and higher and flew away to the east. Dad had spotted one quite some time ago over at Fitzroy Falls, but never in Bundanoon. I managed to snap two photos before it sailed away.

I spent the morning helping set up two more monitoring sites at Stingray Swamp, and thought I heard a Red-backed Kingfisher. Sadly, no visual to confirm this.
