Ngama Malyan (Valley of the Eagle), Mt Gunderbooka (Australia), so named by the traditional owners.

When I got to the start of the summit walk early in the morning there were three distant Wedgies soaring and later another joined them. Three-quarters of the way up one came down and checked me out, circling about 8m above for a minute or so. Later one dropped into the gorge below and I got the chance to see a WTE from above.

At the summit I sat for an hour watching them soar.

A Peregrine Falcon took exception to the Wedgies and strafed them from directly above three times.
