Photographers prosecuted for disturbing WT Eagles

We have said it many times before on this blog and shared previous examples where photographers have transgressed the law.

Once again, in this story here, two photographers have been prosecuted, rightly so for disturbing a pair of White Tailed Eagles on Mull.

As someone who has made a number of visits to Mull, I know these particular birds and have had the pleasure of seeing them, and photographing them from places far from their nesting site, as a result of seeing where they fly, and huge amounts of patience and a large sprinkling of luck.

I will not give them the honour of referring to them as wildlife photographers as they clearly had no regard for their subject. Go away and don't darken our subjects with your appalling behaviours.

Subject comes first, image last.
