I have watched these majestic birds not far from where I live and what a wonderful site they are! Unfortunately we still have the poisoners and trappers and not just for these birds again it's all down to the greed of some landowners and their gamekeepers not to mention the danger of nutcase egg collectors. It's about time very stiff penalties were put in place for all animal abusers!!!!

It is great to see that people are coming to view live birds. Hopefully more countries will realize tourists can bring in more $ and protect their animals/environments.

This is the good news but I periodically received news from an scottish animalist organization and the news from there are not encouraging.
