Hi Daniel,

Excellent photos of high reference value.

Is it a live Little Egret captured by this raptor? Or this raptor eating a dead bird?

Pls advise.

I must admit, I thought it looked like the eagle was carrying an avocet.  

Now I can't workout what it is!

Dear both, this is an avocet. I will show you another photo about the catching time later, though the photo quality is quite poor......

Imperial Eagles have been eating Avocets all winter, seems likely that this is one.
