As it was the last day of the holiday, typically wet and windy, I didn't like my chances of seeing an eagle with a white tail!
A change of plan on our walk location due to the weather, saw us drive alongside the loch where we were staying and there above I spotted at last a White-Tailed Eagle. I made my other half quickly stop in a passing place (I know, but it was an emergency and and it wasn't a busy road!). I watched it for a while, soaring with ease into the strong wind and rain, coping much better than me as I battled to keep my binoculars steady as I got soaked.

As if one wasn't enough, I looked up and spotted another! Unfortunately, we had to leave the passing place and do our short walk - there was a rather impatient Labrador in the back seat! Anyway, after our walk, about an hour later, I spotted the two eagles still soaring above the loch. The size difference between male and female was obvious.

Of course, it would be the one day we went out of the house without the telephoto lens, so I used my bog-standard, non-dslr, zoom camera to take the photos. Better than nothing!
