Another satellite-tracked golden eagle ‘disappears’ in Aberdeenshire

25 June 2013

A young golden eagle that had been fitted with a satellite transmitter to allow researchers to investigate its dispersal movements has ‘disappeared’ in an area of Aberdeenshire where other tracked eagles have also ‘disappeared’. The two year old eagle known as ‘Angus 33’ was being tracked by Highland Raptor Study Group member Roy Dennis, who has been satellite-tracking a variety of raptors over a number of years. Angus 33 is presumed to have been illegally killed.
