“The Erne, or Sea-Eagle – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, simply states: “A Sea-Eagle, seeing a large fish near the surface of the water, pounced down upon it with his terrible claws. When he had killed it, he used it as a raft, and spreading out his wings for sails, was driven by the wind towards the shore.”
