Spotting the shadow might be slightly easier than the bird, which is in front of the rocks top centre. I’m not sure what the bird is, if it’s actually a Golden Eagle or just a Tourist Eagle (aka Buzzard). The picture is a bit older and the other pictures I have aren’t very good, so I’m struggling to judge size etc. Spotted on the west coast of the Rhinns of Islay just south of Lossit Bay.
It wasn’t doing an awful lot apart from occasionally turning its head. And it was quite far away so even with my biggest lens and cropping the picture this is as good as it got. But it was still nice to watch this Golden Eagle on a rocky outcrop near the top of Loch Indaal for I think about 10-15 minutes (I got some better views with my binoculars, just not closer pictures). Then it flew off towards Bridgend Woods, where I lost sight of it.
Admittedly not the greatest picture, but then it was taken with a relatively small lens from a moving boat in bad light. Returning to Craighouse from a RIB trip to the Corryvreckan Whirlpool we spotted this Golden Eagle being pursued by what I believe to be some crows (I think the ones closest to it are two Hooded Crows?) above the Bay of Small Isles.
