The reintroduction of the White-tailed Eagle in Scotland is a big success story and there is now an established in increasing population on the west coast of Scotland.
A few years ago, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) started another reintroduction project in eastern Scotland. In 2007 the first birds were released and since then, every year more birds have been released. The project is going well and hopefully, soon we will see the first breeding attempt of Sea Eagles in eastern Scotland.
In a new interview, Claire Smith from the RSPB talks about this ambitious and important project and describes how the reintroduction program works, how many eagles have been released, how they are doing, the threats they are facing and much more. Be sure to read this new interview:
