*** Updated Statement from Mull Eagle Watch April 2022 ***
The partnership which runs the award winning Mull Eagle Watch project (Mull & Iona Community Trust, RSPB Scotland, Nature Scot, Forestry and Land Scotland & Police Scotland) are sad to say that they are not able to run trips at Craignure Golf Course this year as the birds have moved nest site to an area not easily used for public viewing.
Visit Scotland will therefor not be taking bookings for us, but can provide you with information of alternative land and sea based wildlife trips on 01680812556
We appreciate the support of Visit Scotland, Craignure
Please stay tuned to Twitter @MullEagleWatch & @skyeandfrisa for all the latest news on how the sea eagles are faring this breeding season and any other updates regarding the project.
White-tailed eagles are magnificent birds of prey, with a wingspan of over 2 metres when adult. They became extinct in Britain in the early 1900s but were reintroduced in the 70s.
The first successful breeding of the re-introduced white-tailed eagles occurred on Mull in 1985. Together with the golden eagle, these birds are the reason Mull is often called ‘Eagle Island’.
Mull Eagle Watch started in 2000 at Loch Frisa, allowing people to get great views of the birds without disturbing them. Since then the eagles have become TV stars – famous among bird lovers.
