White-Tailed Eagles on Mull

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It's actually both!
White-Tailed Eagle and plane spotted high above Loch na Keal
I finally made it to the Isle of Mull in early June, spending a night camping on the island.

I was very happy to spot my first White-Tailed Eagle within an hour of arriving on Mull, whilst putting the tent up!  It was soaring above the distant hillside.

I managed to watch a pair of eagles from the tent, which was fantastic.  The female was tagged with a yellow wing tag with a black spot on it.  She is known as 'Yellow Black Spot' (YBS for short).

I hope to get back to Mull again soon and spend longer there.  I got a lot of artistic inspiration watching the eagles and can't wait to paint them.  You can see my White-Tailed Eagle artwork on my website  www.karen-hartnell.co.uk

These photos of YBS and her mate were taken by my other half, and images have been cropped so you can see the eagles better.
