Fledged White-tailed eagle found dead from natural causes on Mull.

We’ve just had some very sad news in from the Forestry Commission Scotland on Mull. They are reporting the young sea eagle which fledged from the  Isle of Mull nest site at Tiroran this year has been found dead – it appears the young eagle has died of natural causes and shows just how tough it can be out there for young eagles in their first winter.


The team over in Mull remember many days watching the young eagle taking her first flights and practising hunting with seaweed along the shoreline of Loch Scridain. The youngster was the only chick to be reared at the viewing site this year. We wish parents Fingal and Iona good luck for 2016.
