Meet Rowan (H33) and Fergus (H42), two sub-adult Golden Eagles translocated from the Western Isles during the last two winter releases.

Rowan (H33) was first to arrive in the south of Scotland and was named after raptor worker Robin Reid’s daughter. Robin and Rowan assisted Dave Anderson, trapping eagles at carcasses, using specialised equipment to ensure the birds safety, in order to fit satellite tags to increase our knowledge and understanding of these magnificent birds.
