Sir, – Recently, I was angling for salmon on Glanmore Lake in Co Kerry and was joined by a white-tailed eagle. We fished together for a half hour. It circled about 50 feet above me and a 150 yards distant. It had a raven acolyte who looked more like a sparrow. What a thrill for an angler; and thanks to the wild life service for making it happen…..
