March - Out like a Lion

So much for the idea that if March comes in like a Lion it goes out like a Lamb - it's wet, windy and the ferries are cancelled again. Enough of that though.
Wildlife sightings have been pretty good over the last week. The Mountain Hares have performed well - poor picture but it was nice to see this one running about.
The WT Eagles will all be incubating eggs now but the final touches were still being added - the essential soft furnishings!
The good days have been awesome...
...the Red Deer seem to be hanging on to their antlers but they will be shed in the next couple of weeks.
A nice encounter with a Golden Eagle being mobbed by a Buzzard showed the size difference very well.
A particularly wet and windy day saw this Grey Heron sheltering on a river.
The feral Goats are still hanging around on the beach but they will soon drift off to the cliffs again.
Otter sightings have been difficult recently but it's not unexpected. Normal service will now resume!
I might be a bit quackers but not as quackers as this Mallard.

Great photos. I had no idea the eagle was soooo much larger than the buzzard! We are having some blustery and rainy weather with high(ish) seas, comfortable temps, though.

Massive size difference, Wilma. 2.5 metre wingspan on the big lad!
Does it ever get cold in Belize?:-)
