High up
After another awesome breakfast we headed for a couple of miles back towards Hawker before taking a rather rough road across to Moralana. We didn't see too much bird life initially, but then spotted a large blob sitting high up on a ridge.

Couldn't really have been anything else but a Wedge-tailed Eagle; due to the distance I was rather proud of this new camera picking up so much detail!

The first of many sightings that day.
