36.Another eagle disappears in the “Bermuda Triangle” of raptors in Scotland´s North-east. April 2017

According to an article in the Aberdeen Evening Express, the missing golden eagle was fitted with a transmitter last summer. “In 2011, a satellite-tagged golden eagle was found illegally poisoned on the same estate, with a shot short-eared owl and poisoned buzzard also discovered. Conservationists say other tagged birds also vanished in the area in February 2012 and May 2013. The first young white-tailed eagle to fledge from a nest in the east of Scotland 100 years also disappeared from the estate in April 2014.”
