Ta for the link to the Stithians bird.
Had been trying to find that for a while.
Think I owe you a tank of petrol and a good days birding... May save it for later on the spring or autumn:)
Seems now from threads we have 6 records of subadult 'wild' Golden Eagle in England and Wales in the past 2 years and 2 positive escapes ...what is going on?
Is/Are they wandering from the Irish reintroduction program...only one of which according
has wandered away from Ireland to Cairngorm. Moreover, all birds released are fitted with tracking devices, so unless they have stopped working on some seems unlikely.
Or is it a secret Welsh reintro program?
Or a collosal loss of money to several falconer?
Who knows... but all very intriguing. :)
to their official website has wandered outside Ireland to Cairngorm. As they are all satellite-tagged

I understand that the bird may have been seen again, and photographed further south in Wales after Mike's original sighting.
Can anyone confirm - and are there more photos?
