On opening the curtains this morning only to see a White Tailed Sea Eagle eating the frog spawn in my pond. I banged on the window and shouted at it to leave the spawn alone, but it wasnt having any of it. I ran downstairs opened the backdoor and chased it away. Sadly I have now lost more than half of the spawn in the pond.
I was so upset I didnt even think to get an image of it at the pond, although I did get some while it was circling over head before it flew away.
Now I think there is a link and reason for this incredible story. Shortly after this episode, I became aware of this story on Birdguides.
I can only assume that the Eagle had been scared off from its homeland, and was so traumatised that it chose to fly 400 miles south from its homeland.
