Eagle Antics Celebrates Scotland's 100 White-tailed Eagle Pairs

The news broke last week on BBC Springwatch that Scotland's White-tailed Eagle population has reached a milestone, with the 100th breeding pair reached this year.  Not only that, but the 100th pair are the first in Orkney for 142 years!

To celebrate this milestone, I was asked recently if I would create an Eagle Antics cartoon ready for the big reveal.  

Part one: Who will win?!
You can see the full cartoon, complete with the winners, on the RSPB East Scotland Sea Eagles blog here - please go and have a look, and give it a 'Like' or even a 'share' if you enjoy it.

It was fun creating this cartoon, which stars a few familiar Eagles: including Mull's 'Yellow Black Spot', 'Victor' and 'Orla' who are often seen from the Glenelg-Kylerhea ferry and, of course, the first breeding pair in the east of Scotland, 'Turquoise' duo '1' and 'Z'.

Congratulations to Scotland's 100!
