Thing of Beauty

One of the great pleasures of working on Dan’s land is seeing wildlife living its wild life. The raptors must get really good updrafts in the Toynbee valley – and perhaps an extra thermal push from the newly-covered tunnel – because one can almost always see Bald Eagles soaring (and hear their eaglets calling for more mice). As usual, a picture from this camera/photographer doesn’t do the scene justice. At one point yesterday there were 3 hawks and 2 eagles soaring right above me and, just prior to this photo, a very lucky swallow that managed to escape the pursuit of an eagle.
