A magnificent bird which gave spectacular views from a well-known motorway service station east of Budapest.  Of the three aquilla eagles that breed in Hungary, this one is by far the most common, their staple diet being Brown Hare.  We also saw a few Lesser Spotted and a pair of Golden Eagle, one of only two pairs left in Hungary, a third apparently being lost to secondary poisoning in March of this year.
