We’ve been monitoring the progress of the eight golden eagle juveniles that we released earlier in the summer. They are all settling into their new home and beginning to fend for themselves.

One of them, Speckled Jim, has evidently managed to remove his harness, which had a satellite tag attached to it.

It has been a hugely successful year for the South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project. After 8 eagles were successfully released at the end of the summer, we now have 12 translocated eagles thriving in southern skies. This year also saw the launch of our permanent exhibition, The Eyrie at Philiphaugh Estate near Selkirk and we held the first ever Eagle Town Festival in Moffat. However, the work doesn’t stop there, 2022 will bring further translocations and many more opportunities to engage people and communities across the south of Scotland with this ground-breaking project and iconic bird.
