White-tailed ea­gles

Mull, Scot­land

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - April -

It’s big and it’s back! The UK’s largest bird of prey went ex­tinct dur­ing the early 20th cen­tury and the present pop­u­la­tion, which can be seen on the Isle of Mull, is de­scended from rein­tro­duced birds. Take a 45-minute ferry trip from Scot­land’s west coast to ‘Ea­gle Is­land’ to see these and other species, in­clud­ing golden ea­gles, kestrels, ospreys, hen har­ri­ers and pere­grine fal­cons. April is a good time to visit, as the white-tailed ea­gles lay their eggs in March, so you may see them on the nest.
