White-tailed (lazy) Eagle

the summering Lincs WTE spent about 11 hours of today sat in a tree and had three short flights -- in the one where it looked as if it might take up the offer of a dead rabbit it seemed to loose interest and just went back to its tree to be mobbed by its two 2cy Common Buzzards (why do they waste so much energy?)  and the odd crow

Always distant but then again it needs to be in the UK or else it would probably be dead; bleaching and moult is really changing the look of its plumage but the missing inner primaries on the left wing do not seem to be showing any signs of replacement
