SW Thailand - White-bellied Sea Eagles (1)
Either from the end of the mangrove walkway or, more commonly, from our hotel balcony, we were spoiled for dramatic views of White-bellied Sea Eagles.
Huge, majestic and yet happily tolerant of human disturbance (at least for large raptors), they were a memorable feature of our stay in Krabi, not least while kicking back with our morning coffee.
