Public picks sea eagle chick names

THE NAMES for two sea eagles said to ‘symbolise the future’ of a Lochaber forest have been decided by a public vote.

Saorsa and Dòchas, Gaelic for Freedom and Hope, are the latest additions to the Arkaig Forest. The chicks hatched in the middle of a £4.5 million appeal to buy and restore the forest which is being sold by Forestry Commission Scotland under the National Forest Land Scheme.

Once extinct in the UK, sea eagles, also known as white-tailed eagles, have been reintroduced and are breeding again in Scotland. The young birds are believed to be the grandchildren of Skye and Frisa – the sea eagle pair on Mull which captured viewers’ hearts in the earliest series of the BBC’s Springwatch programme.
