Scottish Golden Eagles

Another Golden Eagle story, this time in Scotland.

Conservationists hope golden eagles will start reappearing over northern England and the Lake District as part of a project to release up to 10 eagles in southern Scotland.

The birds will start to be released at a secret location south of Edinburgh from next year in a 1.5m programme by conservationists and landowners to restore golden eagle numbers in the southern uplands, where they have struggled to survive.

They've struggled to survive because local grouse moor owners keep shooting and poisoning them. Exactly the same will happen to any that are released. Need to get rid of the criminals first.
