Young White-tailed Eagle
This is an unringed juvenile. In this light the tail looks quite white due to the sunshine but in others it took it looks much darker.
It started flying above my head when I was checking on the Whooper Swans at the small wetland at the bottom of the road. After taking lots of pictures, I was walking to the boat club when my wife phoned to ask if I had seen the White-tailed Eagle that had been flying over the house. When I looked back at the house I saw the Eagle flying towards me and had another opportunity to photograph it. This is one of the later shots.
