Over the last two years we have been developing a trip especially designed to get nature lovers and photographers as close as possible to the 4th largest Eagle in the world, the magnificent White Tailed Sea Eagle. These spectacular birds have wingspans in some cases of over 8 feet. Although much more accepting of human presence than Golden Eagles, most people’s experience of these birds consist of seeing them fly high overhead or sit for hours in a tree! On a Mull Charters trip we regularly have eagles taking fish from the surface of the sea as close as 25 feet away (yes really). Sometimes as they swoop down on their final approach they actually fly directly over the boat and as they take the fish you can hear the wind through their wings and the splash as they touch the water.
These are typical shots you would see on one of our trips.
We have an excellent success rate of getting the eagle to come down close to us for fish.
