This morning one of the Captiva Bald Eagles strayed into Osprey territory:
Chat dosn't go back far enough to cover the incident - but I did find someone telling someone this!

In reply to scylla:
This was the morning get-go - misty, but cleared by the time Lena got back - and they had a l-o-n-g coversation before Andy left:
There was another alarm in the afternoon - I thought I heard voices but forgot to do anything to the sound.
Was this the Mullet that I learned to ID at Dyfi? They get around, if so
And if one hasn't time to watch that short video, here's the fish:
01:41 Lena flew back in with her fish, responding to this potential intruder? Nothing came of it, she flew off with fish - Andy wasn't concerned: (When she returned again @ 14:08 the fish was no more.)
More disturbances thru the afternoon:
There was a report of a possible "aggregation" of manatees - I saw several suspicious underwater wakes and shadows, but nothing that would be indicative of any creature - to uneducated watchers like most of us are.
Lena is hunkered down protecting her eggs, tonight she has rain to cater for.
I haven't followed Lena & Andy thru the day but noticed another American White Pelican gathering - a bit more "before and after" today.
It was a very pale and wan day and my colour is not true-to-life, in the inerests of visibility.
Lena is passing undisturbed nights, closely incubating her 3 eggs.
Today, a sheepshead for lunch:
