White-tailed eagle chick rescued on Mull after falling from nest

1 July 2014

An eight-week old sea eagle chick has been rescued after she fell from her nest on the Isle of Mull. The youngster, a recent star of the BBC’s Springwatch programme, has been watched by a global audience on a live web camera. She disappeared from view at the weekend and concerned webcam viewers raised the alarm. Tree-climbers from the Forestry Commission went to investigate and found the chick, alive and well, underneath the nest tree. After a health check, she was returned to her nest. Story here.
