Taking the Golden Eagle back to the blind
Golden Eagle talons. Freddy Krueger would be proud.
Examining and measuring a Golden Eagle
Recording the measurements of a Golden Eagle. This one is immature (hatch year) and either a large male or small female.
Happiness is catching a very large bird. This is the sixth Golden Eagle of the season, which doubles the previous record.
Everybody wants a picture
Ready to release a Golden Eagle
And we're off...
Hey, wrong way
Where are you going?
..and into a mist net
Can I keep it?
A calm Golden Eagle
...and it's gone
Ready to release a Merlin
'Palming' a Merlin
View from the blind, mist nets taken down for the night
