NAT GEO WILD / 7.30PM

Think you’ve got it tough in the bed­room? Spare a thought for ea­gles. For them it’s not as straight­for­ward as pour­ing some wine, or plan­ning a quiet night in. They’ve got an awk­ward 2.5m wing span to ne­go­ti­ate, no mean feat when you’re perched up a tree. They need to watch out for each other’s “meat cleaver” beak and ra­zor sharp talons , and just when they’ve man­aged all that, last year’s baby, who had fi­nally left home, wan­ders back look­ing for a free feed. It’s a won­der they find time to breed at all.
