Excuse the “quality”, but even if the light improves I may not do better.

Only a few weeks back I was listening to a radio programme which mentioned this bird’s party trick.

They can eat on the wing.

By following the bird as it wheeled around just off The Hong Kong “Gold Coast” I watched it tear chunks off this fish, whilst dining at 200 feet.

Quite some feat.

  1. This is awesome , I really enjoy black and white! Sounds like it was an amazing sight and you can still see the fish.
