White-tailed Eagle - An incredible Garden Bird

Friday 28th October 2016 was the most amazing day for me as a Compton Martin birder in the Chew Valley.

It was the half-term school holidays and I was hanging around at home hoping for a rare bird to turn up somewhere in the country. Little did I know that the bird would turn up, but much closer to home....

This is the article that I wrote for the Chew Valley Gazette about seeing a White-tailed Eagle from my garden on page 62.
