Sea eagles in the past

  • Sea eagles lived in the Highlands and the Islands in the 19th century.

  • Sea eagles used to live in the UK and Northern Europe, excluding Norway, because they have always lived there.


Myths and Legends

  • It was believed that the sea eagle was a child-snatcher.

  • It was also believed King Alfred the Great found a male baby in an eagle’s nest, he was dressed in purple with gold bracelets marking him of Saxon nobility.

  • It was said that King James 1st of Scotland, flew a sea eagle when hunting.

Why are they special?

  • They are special because they are one of Scotland's most beautiful birds.

  • They are the 4th largest bird of prey in the world and the largest in the UK.

  • They play a vital role in maintaining a healthy eco system and food chain.


  • They became extinct in the early 1900’s.

  • They started to re-introduce them in the 1960’s on Fair Isle, but failed.

  • They found success in breeding in Rhum and Wester Ross.

  • The project to bring them back to east Scotland started in 2007.

How do they get here?

  • Some RSPB workers go to Norway and they take one chick from a nest, which has two chicks in it.

  • When they are old enough, they are put into a nest especially made for them, and then onto a plane to come to the east of Scotland.

  • Then they are taken to a secret location and are cared for until they are strong enough to be released into the wild.

What they have done 2010

  • In Fife they have a secret location, where they rear sea eagles. They then release them out into the countryside of east of Scotland.

  • They have just released 19 sea eagles in in Fife on the 20th August 2010.

In the future

  • In the future the RSPB hope to release 80 to 100 sea eagles.

  • They also want to bring 15 to 20 sea eagles to the secret location near Loch Leven.
