The Isle of Wight’s majestic White-tailed Eagles were the subject of a segment on last night’s (Thursday) Autumnwatch on BBC2, with Chris Packham popping over the Solent to find out more about them.
The massively eager Chris was taken on a tour by Steve Egerton-Read, the project officer for the re-introduction of the Eagles on the Island. Chris was blown away by the majestic creatures as they soared above him.
The five-minute feature captured some great footage of the Eagles flying among crows – which gave some scale to the incredible size of the birds – as well as seeing three of them perched together on tree stumps.
If you missed the programme you can watch again on the BBC iPlayer – skip forward 12 minutes if you’re only looking for this particular segment.
