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.

Scottish neonazi caught preparing bomb jailed for 12 years

FAR-RIGHT extremist Peter Morgan, who was caught preparing a bomb with the potential to cause “horrific” injuries, was jailed for 12 years today.

The 35-year-old had already started to assemble the explosive device when he was caught with bomb-making equipment and manuals at his Edinburgh home.

He had also been collecting neonazi, anti-Muslim, anti-semitic and racist material over a five-year period.

Prosecutors said police found explosive substances, propellants, containers, a model rocket initiator and a large quantity of fireworks at Mr Morgan’s home.

A forensic examination of his computer also revealed that he had been downloading bomb manuals, information on how to remove DNA from a dead body and the best way to dispose of a dead body.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, judge Lord Boyd said yesterday that Mr Morgan had been convicted of offences that “threaten the safety of the public, our values as a democracy and strike at the dignity and respect which all members of our community are entitled to expect whatever their race or religion.”
