An Unwelcome Visitor at the Nest

23rd August 2018

At West Ardhu Eagle Watch, we are having the odd sighting of an immature white-tailed eagle who is obviously very inquisitive about what’s going on in the nest.

One day, it went as far as to sit in the nest tree, peering down at the eaglet in the nest before Hope crashed in to chase it off. The nearby group of five kestrels also joined in!

We are still running tours until the end of September so call the VisitScotland Craignure iCentre on 01680 812556 to book.

Thanks for reading,
