Who was the hunter and who was the hunted?

Who was the hunter and who was the hunted?...

We discovered this recent predation on the coast of Mull this week. After assessing the plumage remains we found the prey item to be an adult Herring Gull, but who was the predator...

Well it seems he/she kindly left a clue in the form of a moulted feather (pictured), and what I think is a secondary covert. The feather belonged to a majestic White-tailed Eagle!
