Old Basing (26/02/11)

On hearing that the White-tailed Sea-Eagle from the New Forest had relocated to Old Basing I decided to go shopping in Basingstoke and dropped into Old Basing on the way there. However, I found that the bird had flown off quite early and so I went on a drive around the lanes to see if I could locate with no success.

I then went off to do my shopping and returned later.

I returned to the original viewpoint and was rewarded with the bird sitting distantly in the top of a dead tree. After a while it got disturbed by a Range Rover and flew off low east. Once again I tried to relocate it without any success.

Also in the area were a number of Buzzards and at least 3 Red Kites.
