Mull Sea-Eagle Chicks Hatch

Mull Eagle Watch, the famous sea eagle viewing hide at Loch Frisa is celebrating 10 years of the sea eagles Frisa and Skye nesting there, with the latest batch of chicks now hatched.  

Hopes are high that these will add to the 14 chicks that Frisa and Skye have successfully hatched at Loch Frisa since 1998, after last year’s disaster when the chicks fell out of the nest shortly after hatching. 

Dave Sexton, RSPB Scotland Mull Officer, said: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s season; the chicks are now hatched and everything looks good. Skye and Frisa have been brilliant over the last 10 years, even becoming the stars of BBC’s Springwatch in 2005.  So, it’s 10 years of success for them, but also testament to the dedication of the Mull Eagle Watch Partnership.  People are very welcome to come along and see the nest this year by calling 01688 302 038.”

Elaine Jamieson, from Forestry Commission Scotland, said: “Everyone is very excited about the chicks hatching and we can’t wait to see them start exploring the woodland. Visitors to the hide will be in for a real treat once the chicks start peeking out of the nest.”
