Camera to Monitor Golden Eagles on Atholl Estate

Bird watchers are to be given a rare opportunity to get up close to golden eagles and their chicks in Blair Atholl.

A digital camera link is being created for next spring’s nesting so visitors to the Wild Scotland member, Atholl Estates will be able to watch the young eagles’ progress.

The live pictures will be fed to viewing points in the village, Blair Castle and the caravan park.

There are 400 pairs of golden eagles in Scotland which are protected by law. The species was originally distributed all over Europe, but has suffered a serious decline in numbers due to persecution and large-scale land use changes.
