The white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) is an enormous eagle widely distributed across Eurasia. As are all eagles, it is a member of the family Accipitridae (or accipitrids) which includes other diurnal raptors such as hawks, kites, & harriers. One of up to eleven members in the genus Haliaeetus, which are commonly called sea eagles, it is not infrequently also referred to as the white-tailed sea-eagle.
This trip is best suited to those of you with mid-level to advanced photography skills looking for a new challenge. We pride ourselves in offering something unique to clients in comparison to other trip providers, so we have coordinated this itinerary to allow you to capture these magnificent birds at sunrise & sunset.
Highlights of the trip include alternating days between boat trips on to the frozen waters to photograph the White-tailed Sea Eagles in the best light available as the swoop & dive above the seas, & two days capturing images from a hide offering you the chance to get up close to these magnificent birds & witness their feeding behaviours. Cosy accommodation nearby provides an oasis from the harsh winter conditions. All the details are taken care of for you so that you can relax & enjoy this unique wildlife photography adventure.
The boat trips are conducted on a specially designed boat with sides that can be lowered, this allows for photography just a few centimetres above the water-line; whilst the hide, shown in the photo above, has been sunken into the ground next to an eagle drinking pool with medical-grade clarity glass, heating & a toilet.
Victoria, one of our photography guides, will lead you throughout this photography tour, providing guidance & advice as needed & helping you develop your skills. They will help you capture images of the White-tailed Sea Eagles in wide-angle & close up shots; capturing them in movement while feeding & fighting for fish, interacting with each other or in-flight with the impressive backdrop provided by the sea & surrounding snow-laden landscapes.
