Not many reports of rare birds recently but we see plenty of ducks geese and mute swans on the various lochs in the Ness area. Our resident golden eagles, however, are always active. Their flight path takes them along the valley of the Dell river, from their moorland habitat to their food larder on the machair land of the Atlantic coastline. The machair is overrun with rabbits and this provides the eagles with a plentiful supply of fresh, nutritious food all the year round. Anyone wishing to see golden eagles in flight has a good chance of doing so by parking in the Ness Hall car park, overlooking the Dell River. We are very privileged in this respect, as most people live their entire lives without ever catching a glimpse of this magnificent creature.

We need a kinder vision for animal protection. We need one grounded in the core value that rejects species discrimination, embraces respect for biological differences, and commits to achieving ends only through non-violent means. Above all else, it would be guided by the principle that respect for sentient life is paramount, irrespective of species, and irrespective of any traits a particular species may have evolved that do not set arbitrary or culturally inherited human prejudices
