Saturday eagle encounter

Drove up the hill for a walk this afternoon & spotted one of the eagles sitting on a rock on the SE edge of the plateau.

Enjoying the view out to the east, with Salpeterkop in the background
Strolled to within about 200 metres of it before it decided to take off & head home down the cliff to the south.

Time to go!
Those first few wing-beats are hard work...

About to disappear below the ridge
A stunning day up here - hard to believe the weather's due to pack up tomorrow, there's even snow forecast!
