Bald Eagle Florida Nov 2017

25 October, 2014

The presence of Shooters this morning at the back of the golf course I quickly decided this was going to be a brief visit. A Short-eared Owl over the dunes being mobbed by corvids and then again flushed from behind the Mill cottage was a good early start, then 3 Brambling flying west overhead was another bonus.
