RSPB swoops on missing eagle

A WHITE-tailed eagle, made famous on BBC Two's Springwatch programme in 2005, has been discovered breeding in the west of Scotland.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) Scotland launched an appeal to find the birds, which were featured as chicks in the first series of the nature programme.

One of the birds, named Itchy, has now been found breeding with an untagged adult female.
