EA­GLES SOAR­ING

Bird Watching (UK) - - News -

Golden Ea­gle num­bers are soar­ing, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est na­tional sur­vey from the RSPB and Scot­tish Nat­u­ral Her­itage. This year’s sur­vey counted 508 pairs, a 15% in­crease on the pre­vi­ous sur­vey in 2003. Sig­nif­i­cantly, the re­sults mean that the Golden Ea­gle now meets the tar­gets needed to iden­tify it as species hav­ing “favourable con­ser­va­tion sta­tus” in the UK. Slightly less wel­come is the news that Scot­land may now be home to all of the UK’S Golden Ea­gles.
