    Scottish Churchman At War With Sea Eagle

    A Scottish churchman is furious with the RSPB over its ongoing campaign to save the sea eagle from disappearing from Scotland. After being terrorised by the country’s largest bird of prey – which killed one of his prize-winning geese and left him wounded -  theVery Reverend Hunter Farquharson, Provost of Perth Cathedral, is opposing the campaign. Mr Farquharson said if a dog had caused the damage, it would have been immediately destroyed, but anyone hurting a sea eagle could face prosecution – which means he has been unable to protect his prize geese.

    He lives in a cottage at Abernethy, near Perth, and has been successfully breeding and showing Toulouse geese for a number of years as a hobby. A spokesman for RSPB Scotland said what had happened was regrettable and they would visit Mr Farquharson to ensure the safety of his birds. He added: “The sea eagles just introduced are young and naive birds.”
