Ladybirder, wonderful photos of Fish Eagle being bombed by a lapwing while chicks around. I saw an immature FE took a Black Crake chick which was not good, so nature can be cruel and constantly in survival mode :shock:

Jan, some more stunning action with Pied spreading its wings, Fish Eagle landing and White-faced duck flying past the hide :clap: :clap: :clap:
