POLAND - WHITE-TAILED EAGLES
Towards the end of February 2017, I spent a week in Poland photographing White-tailed Eagles at a winter
feeding station about 120 km west of Warsaw. Generally the weather was cloudy and dull, but there was
occasional sun and, with 20+ Eagles coming into feed, there were plenty of opportunities
to photograph their behaviour.
The White-tailed Eagle can be seen across much of northern Europe and as far east as Japan. Once common
in parts of UK, birds were re-introduced to Scotland about 35 years ago and, more recently,
to the Isle of Wight. Adult Eagles have paler heads than the younger birds,
and their bills are completely yellow.
