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.
The South of Scotland Eagle Project is now calling on volunteers to support project staff, and the Scottish Raptor Study Group, in monitoring sightings of the birds.

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
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.
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.”

Scottish workers to speak out against pensions bankrolling US border jails
UNIONS will hit out this week at the use of Scottish public-sector pension funds to invest in firms which bankroll US border jails.
Unison and Unite are issuing the formal complaint after it emerged that Scots hold £138 million in funds which have huge investments in CoreCivic and GEO Group, which have separated hundreds [thousands] of children from their parents at the southern US border.
The children, many of them infants and toddlers, have been put into detention centres while their parents await prosecution or are deported for attempting to cross the border under a new law that was enacted by US President Donald Trump in May.
Unison head of policy and public affairs Dave Watson told the Sunday Post yesterday that the issue of Scottish workers’ pensions being used to invest in these operations will be flagged up at the union’s pension conference on Friday August 17.
The Post revealed last month that Strathclyde Pension Fund, which manages pensions for 230,000 Scottish public service workers, has £52m invested in Blackrock, Vanguard, Aviva, St James’s Place, JPMorgan Chase, and Wells Fargo – all of which fund the US prison operators.
Lothian Pension Fund, with more than 65,000 members, has investments worth £28m with General Dynamics, a multinational defence firm with US contracts to process migrants aged under 16, and Wells Fargo. North East Scotland Pension Fund has investments worth £58m in Blackrock, St James’s Place, Aviva and Vanguard.
USA: After leaked draft executive orders in January 2017, January 2018 and March 2018, an NBC report earlier in August revealed the [Trump] administration’s plans to change existing immigration rules to deny permanent residency and citizenship to legal immigrants who might have accessed any kind of public benefits for themselves or their family members or dependents before submitting their application: here.
