White tailed eagle, Halliaeetus albicilla) , 
Used as I am to photographing the magnificent white tailed eagle on the Isle of Mull, it was a pleasure and a surprise to see these birds in large numbers together with the even larger Stellar's sea eagles on the sea ice off Rausu, Hokkaido, Japan
Massive attack!
