A young, wild golden eagle on the Isle of Mull stares down Murdo Macleod. The photographer was visiting the island – home, along with other islands along Scotland’s rugged west coast, to the largest population of these magnificent birds in the UK. This four-year-old male, which was unable to fly due to an irreparably broken wing, had been rescued by islanders, and taken to a bird of prey sanctuary in Craignure. The conservation centre, called Wings Over Mull, lets people get close to the birds. While better known for its owls, hawks, falcons, vultures and red kites, the sanctuary was caring for a second golden eagle. Both happily posed for close-ups – allowing Macleod to get the perfect shot.
