Photos and video: Beautiful Richmond...bald eagle takes city centre break

A video was also recorded of a seagull swooping down on the eagle

A Richmond News reader has captured photos and video of a rather unusual visitor to his high-rise balcony in the city centre.

Todd (who only gave his first name) snapped this amazing shot last week of what appears to be an adult bald eagle, taking a break on the rail of his 17th floor balcony, high above Buswell Street, with views over to Richmond Centre shopping mall.

And he also recorded a short video of a seagull taking umbrage at the presence of the large bird of prey, swooping down on it, with the eagle trying to bite it on the way past.
