White Tailed Eagle

Posted by Dave Kilbey on Sunday 08 May 2011 at 3:55am

If you’ve ever wondered whether you’d be able to tell an eagle from some of our other larger birds of prey as it soars over some distant peak, you’d be in the company of a good many wildlife enthusiasts.  What you really need in such a situation is an irate buzzard to join the scene in order to add some perspective.

This immature white tailed eagle was flapping lazily along a ridge of hills in Clackmannanshire and is probably one of the birds released in Fife.  I still can’t quite get over the sheer scale of these birds.  How they ever get off the ground I’ll never understand.
