White-bellied Sea Eagles, Sydney, NSW

I've been posting these in the off-season Loch Garten thread but it's time to stop, so here they are until the ospreys prevent me from sparing time & resources for the beautiful couple and their beautiful (mostly ;) ) co-habitants.

Last season 2 youngsters safely fledged (but only just, it was hairy for a while, with one on the ground defending vs a persistent fox).

It was a relief to see the 2 adults return after the worst of the fires had passed.



Some birdie porn brought forward to save you risking the dark web ;)

The Rainbow Lorikeets are delightful and often invade in numbers, but the cams need to be manned to get decent close-ups of them.
