The few fishing boats still operating in Makholma Bay starts roaming around the bay area by sunrise. The bird life there, that's rather peaceful at this time of summer, start they activities at same time. But when a White-tailed Eagle makes a land on the reef, an enormous hulaballoo occures. The birds still left; Herring Gulls, Terns and two pairs of Caspian Tern starts keeping a concert that is heared a long way. This track is from an over night recording with the Eagle making a visit on the reef. The Eagle is here yelling approximately once a minute; 29 times. (Maybe some longer screams are at 10.09, 14.06, 30.30, and 34.03.) The picture above is from the abandoned small fishing huts on the reef.
