The latest videos and sketches from Eagle Officer John Wright featuring Emily (121) and Skan (C17).

With winter tightening its grip and the first flurries of snow making an appearance it's great to report that all four of the young Eagles are doing really well and remain in the South of Scotland.

The following sketches and video are from late October - late November 2020.

The sketches above show Emily (121) nearing the end of a heavy summer moult with the top two sketches from late October and the lower from late November. The sketches below capture Emily (121) on the same late-October day, this time perched amongst an entourage of Ravens.

At the end of November, John managed to video Skan (C17) as he passed through the Moffat Hills. After observing him for almost an hour, Skan (C17) headed off on his way.
