Aaran Rapids

Tidal rapids are so strong in some areas that bottom feeding fish are pulled up from the sea bed and find themselves on the surface with decompression sickness, making them easy prey for Eagles that will gather in these places. This is what happened to this particular Hake fish near Arran Rapids by Stuart Island on June 2nd. There were well over a hundred Eagles waiting for a feeding frenzy. Quite a spectacle!
