Golden eagles have been released in the south of Scotland as part of a £1.3 million project to boost the iconic raptors in an area where there numbers are at a historic low. Three chicks were transported from eyries in the Highlands to a secret location in the Moffat Hills.

Golden eagle chicks successfully released into the Scottish wild

GOLDEN eagle chicks have been successfully released into the wild in southern Scotland in the first of a “ground-breaking” series of relocations.

Three of the young birds of prey, named Edward, Beaky and Emily by primary school pupils, have been moved from the Highlands to a secret location.

The £1.3 million project is part of efforts to increase the number of golden eagles in the Southern Uplands, where they have become rare.

South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project chairman Mark Oddy said: “Arguably Scotland’s most iconic bird, in recent decades, the south Scotland golden eagle population has been small and fragmented.

“We want to give it a helping hand to overcome problems in the past which have limited the size and viability of the population.”

The golden eagle is the second-largest bird in Britain, beaten only by the white-tailed or sea eagle.
