Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

White-tailed eagle (sea eagle)

The white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) is the largest of the European birds of prey, with a wingspan that can reach up to 240 cm. It is easier to find this species near rocky coastlines and sheltered sea lochs, rather than in exposed coastal areas.

The white-tailed eagle became extinct in the UK in the early 1900s. Thanks to a re-introduction programme that brought chicks over from Norway to the Island of Rum, the species is currently living here and individuals can be seen here all year round.

These eagles build their nests in trees, where they can be seen in West Scotland between April and September. Once they have staked out a territory then tend to stay there for life, which means that you should have a good chance to see individuals in their specific territories, especially with the help of a local operator (even though there are only about 40 breeding pairs in Scotland).
