Erne Returns

Shetland News reports on the return of the erne, the local and Norse-derived word for, in this case, the Norwegian white-tailed eagle. It was an established feature of the area in the 19th Century and so the sightings of the past three weeks have been particularly exciting. This eagle was mobbed ... by black-backed gulls and hooded crows. Both these images are from Norwegian sources.
