Sea Eagle Release!

The Raptor Refuge released a young and fighting fit White Bellied Sea Eagle the other day. After being found a little dazed and confused but with no serious injuries this young eagle only needed a couple of days to regain his strength and be on his way.

The Raptor Refuge is a non profit organisation and relies on donations to continue vital conservation activities such as this release. I am very proud to have been photographing for the refuge for many years now, and contributing my images to the calendar, cards and other educational and fundraising purposes.
