Sunshine and Eagles

Out walking this morning, I heard an unusual bird noise overhead. Loooking up, a large white tailed bird was circling above the road. It flew off to hover over the field, and can just be seen as a blaxk speck on the horizon.

I recognised it as an eagle, but didn't know what kind. I've just looked it up and I believe it was a white tailed eagle. Once common, became extinct, recently a reintroduction programme has been attempted.

It was beautiful, and I felt priviliged to have this sighting.
