Eagle Schools cover various topics such as raptor identification, eagle lifecycle, diet and some of the challenges they face in the wild. We also look at conservation and the efforts that go into a project such as the South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project. This was an opportunity to talk about the various specialists who contribute to such a project, and for the pupils to ask them some questions. See below for some of the questions and answers.

From Witches Butter Fungi to Badger Latrines the students explored their local environment and put into practice all of the skills they honed during their Eagle Schools 'Eagle ID' sessions.

Last week Eagle Officer John Wright caught up with our oldest female Emily (121) a wee bit North of her last position. She has found a very active rabbit warren and, much like Edward (Blog 7.1.19), was seen exhibiting the same sort of hunting strategy employed by the young male.
