Eagles of Mull
Video: At the White-tailed Sea Eagle Nest

It’s a clear, sunny day on the Isle of Mull, and Gordon Buchanan has found the perfect opportunity to get closer to the white-tailed sea eagle nest, where a couple of two-week-old chicks are peaking their heads up. Suddenly, one of the adults swoops in carrying a lamb – a good meal for the growing chicks.

    This was a beautiful and informative show. The Scottish people who live in the country, as all country people it seems, are warm, caring and you can feel their enthusiasm for our animal brethren. Thanks for showing this. Hope we see more from Gordon Buchanan.

    Show was breathtaking, filming spectacular. Thank you Gordon Buchanan for capturing a place I can not see in person. Eagles and other raptors are my passion and I was not disappointed with the filming or the content.

  • Randall

    This episode of Nature set in Mull was fantastic. Scotland is a wonderful place and I miss it terribly. PLEASE more nature programmes set in the UK and Europe.

    Yesterday, people in our community have witnessed 7 Eagles together, soaring in the middle of town, circling for several mins. We have never seen them come down here b4. We live in a small community called Paulatuk, NWT, Canada, on the coastal shores of the Beaufort Sea. And to see these amazing birds here together, was quite amazing and a little scary. Something’s up and they know it. I’m not sure what to do with this information. Can some1 direct me?

    I love the Scottish people and Scotland. They are a warm and friendly people. It seems to be such a romantic country in many ways. It is so small and yet, the Scots are loved the world over. For nature, fishing, bird watching, castle and loch hopping, it is quite heavenly. I’d love to retire to a wee croft in the Highlands, with nothing around me but, wildlife, sea and castles. How charming that would be.

  • Linda in Arizona

    The magic is intact. What a wonderful tribute to the island. Breathtaking and mesmerizing. Thank you for showing me some of my heritage I am sure I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. I was agape at the beauty.

  • Carol/Geoff Stubbs

    Just watched your wonderful program on the sea eagles of Mull (and other wildlife there) My husband and I recently returned from 2 weeks in the Hebrides… We were with a renowned bird watcher from Yorkshire and spent wonderful long days searching for those ellusive eagles…we did see one nest on our way to Bunessan .It was thrilling to see. Watching your program brought back all of those spectacular vistas, the sheep on the roads, the brisk weather, the wildness of the Isle…plus it filled in the details on those magnificent eagles. The scottish music and the personable Mr.Buchanan made it perfect. Bravo !!
