Masters of the sky

Our resident pair of white-tailed sea eagles have been frequent visitors around the lighthouse for the last few days. Sea eagles are the UK’s largest birds of prey and with a wingspan of two metres they make a majestic sight soaring above the cliffs, earning their nickname of  the ‘flying barn door’. They are frequently mobbed and harried by gulls, crows and ravens, and their aerobatics as they try to outsmart their tormentors are fascinating. We never tire of watching these amazing creatures.
