White tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla)

The magnificent white tailed eagle only recently reintroduced to the Uk is now thriving on the west coast of Scotland, especially on the Isle of Mull. Here we regularly include trips on the Lady Jayne to photograph these spectacular birds on our wildlife photography days and trips to the Isle of Mull.

Sometimes a chance encounter on the island can also produce some spectacular images!
