Whales and Sea Eagles and Skuas

The whales pass by here every year at around this time and they are circling in front of the house (maybe 200 yards away) and there is a sea eagle on the beach and the skuas are diving like arrows and skimming the breaking waves. Unfortunately, the sea air has corroded the camera and the mobile 'phone just isn't up to the job. I should really get disposable cameras for such times. I am patiently waiting the tail flip, which is spectacular.


  1. Never mind that, partridge? Pulling up a pew and tucking in my bib.

  2. No partridges here, sadly! But a rookery of five albatross just passed the upper front verandah. I'll have to get a camera one of these fine days!
