This is a powerful, must-watch video.
Claire Smith, currently a Senior Conservation Officer with RSPB Scotland, was previously employed by the East Scotland Sea Eagle Project between 2007-2011 when these birds were being reintroduced from Norway.
Here she explains the devastating personal impact of having to deal with the continued illegal killing of these eagles on some driven grouse moors.
“You become a little bit numb to it………You’re almost just waiting for the next one”.
She also talks about the white-tailed eagle that was recently found poisoned on a grouse moor inside the Cairngorms National Park (see here for background).
