The moment eagle seizes lamb and carries it off in Scotland

In photos snapped by Douglas Currie, from Loanhead, Midlothian, the farm animal is seen being dangled precariously above the ground as the bird grips it with its talons.



Mr Currie, 74, an amateur photographer, captured the moment while on holiday with his wife on the Isle Of Mull, off the west coast of Scotland.

"We saw this big shape through the sky and my wife thought it was a fish," he said.

"We then realised it was a lamb - and I rattled off a load of shots. The bird was struggling. It is the most extraordinary sight have had so far."
