The March just passed was a fabulous month, cold and clear with a lot of sunshine. The nights were bitterly cold for over 6 weeks making the sea ice thich and safe to walk on, actually thick enough to drive a car across the ice. It has been a great month to shoot White-tailed Eagles in sparkling winter light over the frozen expanses of ice, where they gather to look for scraps left behind by the local fishermen. The combination of blue sky, bright sun  and glittering snow is the best for impressive flight shots of any bird, which for me have been the eagles and the Goshawks. This image of a "Blue Moon" (the second full moon in a given month) was taken on March 31 on the sea ice near Hanko, on the Finnish south coast. Notice the young White-tailed Eagle to the left, returning to its night roost a good half-hour after sunset.
