Wedge-tailed Eagle

Three birds soaring over the northern section at 10:30. Later in the southern section at 12:00 we spotted three birds again and assumed that they were the same birds. However, looking in the opposite direction we spotted two more birds soaring high. Seconds later another two birds appeared very close over the trees and soared right over us making an incredible seven birds soaring at once in the same airspace! An impressive sight. I managed to get four birds in the one image.
