RSPB'S Jamie Wyver visited Mull recently to find out more about the island's white-tailed eagles. Have a listen as he talks to Dave Sexton. RSPB Scotland's Mull Officer, about the eagles' 30 year history there.
Mull's white-tailed eagles
This year we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of white-tailed eagles on the Scottish island of Mull. Twenty pairs of white tailed eagles now nest here, including the first ever couple, Norwegian birds now in their early 30s.
I was lucky enough to visit the island earlier this year and watch these impressive birds myself, as part of a press trip.
Dave Sexton, our Mull Officer, was our host and one of the places he took us was the Mull Eagle hide — a friendly little project set up by RSPB Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland, the Mull and Iona Community Trust and Police Scotland. Here you can look out at the nest of TV stars, eagles Fingal and Iona. As we watched the eagles I asked Dave to tell me a little about their history on the island - you can listen here.
