First of all, we hope wherever you are in the world, that you are safe and well and those you care about are equally so.

With everyone stuck indoors (including all of us!), we thought this would be an excellent time to begin to share some of the images, videos and stories from the first two seasons and to increase the frequency of posts on the Blog (that wouldn’t be hard, we hear you say!!)

Project Update - 2020 Translocations

2 April 2020

We really hope you are keeping safe and well during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It is important that we all follow the latest government advice at this time to support our wonderful NHS and help to save the lives of our loved ones, our staff and our communities. For this reason, we sadly will not be proceeding with plans to collect or release chicks in June of this year as we had previously planned and been licensed to do so. It would be irresponsible for us to contemplate any collections or releases which require a team of dedicated staff and volunteers while restrictions on movements are in place.

9 March 2020

On a wet and windy night in January SSGEP Project Manager, Cat, journeyed to Scotland’s National Book Town, Wigtown, to meet with podcaster and actor, David Oakes who would interview Cat about Golden Eagles in one of the town’s many bookshops.The Open Book is a rather special and unique bookshop in that it doubles as an Air BnB where guests not only book to stay in the flat above the shop but also run the bookshop for the length of their stay.This week in particular the bookshop was in the hands of Tess and Stef, good friends of David Oakes and the host of the podcast Trees A Crowd.David took this opportunity to use the bookshop to record his podcast in front of a live audience for the first time ever, and invited Cat along to talk about the work of the SSGEP in Wigtown’s surrounding area in Dumfries and Galloway.The lure of eagles, wine and a lovely bookshop setting enticed enough people (and a cello!) to venture out into the miserable weather to listen to the interview and filled the bookshop to capacity.The podcast can be listened to here:https://www.treesacrowd.fm/dr-catherine-barlow/
