Marraweeny Harvest - The Eagle's View

Here is what the eagle sees as he flies above Marraweeny at harvest time during May.  The white shapes under the trees are the picking frames which catch the olives.  The electric rakes shake the olives out of the tree into the frames, and we then sweep them into the crates under the frames.  Thirty-nine crates hold a bit less than a tonne and fit neatly into our trailer
