RSPB and Forestry Commission staff along with conservationists head out to GPS tag pairs of golden eagle chicks in remote nest sites near Loch Ness in Scotland. Experts will monitor their movements for six months as part of a major survey of the species. Golden eagle numbers are rising but the birds continue to be at risk from poorly sited wind farms and illegal killing.

    Editor’s Comment. Hi Rob, thank you yes it seems to be OK now, must have been a problem on the server which has not been rectified. In fact the site is running faster than it has ever done on the new server, we are very pleased with the improved service.
