On my small country property in northern NSW I was just settling down on my verandah for some lunch when I saw this bird diving straight down from far up in the sky towards my three donkeys grazing in the paddock no more than 50 metres away. First I thought it was going to attack one of the donkeys but it was heading for a cattle egret walking on the ground next to the donkeys. When the bird got close, the donkeys got startled and run away but the egret didn't have a chance. The wedge-tailed eagle lifted it up on to a low branch on a gum tree near by, it only took him about 10 min. to finish the meal. After that exiting sight it was time for me to have my lunch.
