Had a couple of hours at Weyhill Hawk Conservancy yesterday.


Look out fish by Gary Kinghorn, on Flickr

I only live about 3 miles away, but like an idiot I never go. I really should get a season ticket and make myself.

It's a shame such an animal is shackled even if it's for it's conservation, it takes a lot away from the image. I think I'd have to eliminate those cuffs if it were my photo.

Cracking shot, but do you mind me asking what the setup was, as it, was the ground/pond baited so that you knew where to point your camera to get a shot like this, or where you panning with the bird and using a very high shutter speed

I'm always amazed how shots like this have been achieved so would love to know

It was at a flying display. I knew the guy was going to bait the pond. Lock focus on the eagle, follow it until it is close to the pond, then rapid release a number of shots, hoping for the best !!!
