White Tailed Sea Eagle

After much discussion from seasoned and more knowledgeable birders than myself, I'm happy to confirm this large raptor I photographed over the reservoir on Rhodes is a sub-adult, 2-3 year old white tailed sea eagle. In Scotland I have heard them referred to as flying barn doors, the king of all eagles, with a wing span  of up to 11 feet I'm not surprised.
