Nice shot of the fish eagle, and thanks for the info on the water level at LP. My wife has just bought a Canon 7D2 and she is chomping at the bit to try it out in Kruger.

I have contact with a photographer in Alaska, he is in Haines at the moment photographing Bald Eagles. The latest count has 3000+ bald eagles over just 5 miles of river. The spawning salmon are so big the eagles can't lift the fish. So he expects lots of air to air combat as the eagles steal from each other.

We hope for a couple of fish eagles at LP or Sunset Dam, oh well, such is life.
