Mull Eagle Watch

Join us on a ranger-led visit to discover Mull’s majestic white-tailed eagles

 

Open from Monday 13th April 2015

 

Mull Eagle Watch offers ranger-led visits to view Britain’s largest and most impressive bird of prey, the white-tailed eagle. There’s also a really good chance of seeing other wildlife including golden eagles, red deer, buzzards and smaller species like crossbill.

We’re excited to be working with Iona and Fingal, our well known eagle pair down in Glen Seilisdeir. We had planned to move location this year but Sula and Cuin had other ideas and have moved nest site whilst working hard to defend their territory from another pair. That just shows how successful these birds really are! We’re looking forward to spending more time in an amazing location with a fantastic pair of birds and hopefully they’ll have another successful year. Our eagle chick in 2014 fledged and was named Thistle by primary school children.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for more information and regular updates.

Please bring…

We recommend you bring waterproofs, just in case! Midge repellent can be handy too.

Bring binoculars if you have them – we have good quality telescopes for you to use.

Anything else I need to know?
The visit will include short walks on gravel tracks and time spent standing in our viewing area.

Please let us know any specific requirements you may have, and closer access can be arranged. We don’t currently have toilet facilities on site.

Well behaved dogs are welcome and we’d much rather them come to say hello than stay in your car.

We work closely with the RSPB to care for and protect Mull’s white-tailed eagles. You can keep up to date with what’s going on at the nest on our Mull Eagle Watch blog.
