Episode 2

Brian Kennedy travels the fjords of Norway chasing the White Tailed eagle.

This week Wild Trials follows singer, novelist, television presenter and Eurovision entrant, Brian Kennedy as he heads on the trail of the White tailed eagle. Extinct in Ireland since the early 1900s, the demise of this majestic bird was brought about primarily by human persecution. Brian must head to Norway, home to the largest population of White Tailed eagles in Europe to get his photo.

To be in with a chance, Brian must spend many hours on a boat travelling the coastal fjiords in the hope of spotting and capturing on camera his subject. With a rocky platform and a very fast moving subject, he is in for a difficult time. Will Brian find his sea legs and be quick enough with the camera to get the winning shot?
