golden eagle afternoon

Guided a regular group of clients who come over mainly for the golf but they love their nature as well.It was a splendid afternoon, warm, bright with distant views of Ireland and the Garvallachs in opposing directions. we were high on the Glen Road, having spotted several Warblers, Raven, Kestrel and Red Deer. we did not have to wait long for the eagle but at first it was quite a distance away on a thermal, it dropped and delighted us all by getting considerably closer - so much so it filled the binoculars! Brilliant.
