Another eagle watch at Loch Leven on Saturday 15 December, in between showers. While the boys, White-Tailed Eagles Yellow O (from 2010 release) and Red E (2011 release), still eluded me at the loch, female Turquoise H (2009 release) was on good form yet again.
I spotted her standing on the ice, which had started to melt, and within second she took off and flew into trees on the island. Unfortunately, she took off so quickly after I had initially spotted her that I hadn't managed to get the correct settings set up on the camera! I took these photos anyway.
Maybe one day the light conditions, weather, eagle and I will all conspire to create The photo! But that is all the fun of watching wildlife, just never know what will happen. On the plus side, I have got a lot of artistic research done for a possible painting or two!
