The eagle hasn't landed

I'm off today on my 13th and final Biscay crossing of the year. I only came back on Sunday night after three consecutive trips, amassing 11 species of cetacean and seeing thousands of whales and dolphins (with nearly 300 Fin Whales [or unidentified large rorquals] along the way. The birds have been very good too, with loads of shearwaters in the Bay, and a few days ago I had my best view of a Little Shearwater at the bow of the Pride of Bilbao.
I'll be posting more on the last few trips when I return, but meantime check out the Company of Whales website for our latest sightings and have a look at these Short-toed Eagle pics, snapped hovering over Santurtzi (10.9.05)
