Live Eagle Pictures

June 21st 2013

Live Golden Eagle Video Link

Sensational live pictures of a Golden Eagle nest complete with four week old chick are now drawing crowds to the Assynt Visitor Centre in Lochinver.

After three years of trying Countryside Ranger Andy Summers has finally succeeded in streaming the only current live pictures from a nest which is over 10km distant and on top of a crag on a mountain top!

The Visitor Centre is open from 10am until 5pm.

Over the next few weeks visitors will be able to watch the parents bringing food to their chick; recent meals have included a mountain hare.

Massive thanks to everyone who helped make this possible and sponsors who include the Assynt Foundation, Assynt Tourism Group, Scottish Natural Heritage and Highland Council.
