Golden opportunity

Have your say

Organisers of a bid to boost golden eagle numbers in the south of Scotland want a good variety of people to attend their public meetings – one of which will be held in Selkirk.

Julie Nock of the Southern Uplands Partnership said: “We want gamekeepers, farmers, bird lovers and, most importantly, given the long-term effects of the plans, young people.

“We currently have just one pair and a chick in the south of Scotland and we want as many people as possible from all walks of life to attend the meetings.”

The Selkirk event takes place on Tuesday, September 27, in the Victoria Halls, Selkirk.

Drop-ins are from 3-6pm, while the main meeting is from 7-9pm.
