Documentary revealing the wildlife of the Scottish Highlands, seen by film-maker Fergus Beeley. Featuring rare black-throated divers and white-tailed sea eagles.
This stunningly beautiful film reveals the unique wildlife of the Scottish Highlands, seen through the eyes of film-maker Fergus Beeley.
Based for a year at Loch Maree and the surrounding hills in Scotland's far north west, Beeley presents his personal view of the shy animals whose lives are ruled by the rains. He follows the fortunes of rare black-throated divers and white-tailed sea eagles, which both breed there, while capturing the red deer and salmon whose lives also revolve around the loch.
With an evocative score provided by local musician Phil Cunningham, this enchanting film captures the magic of a very special place.
White-tailed sea eagle
Standing at 1m tall with a 2m wingspan the white-tailed sea eagle is a majestic presence in the lochs of the highlands. However, even these masters of the air have to learn how to fly at some point.
It's not easy for young black-throated divers to learn how to fly. Taking off can be very tricky due to their short wingspan, and landing in water can be a very bumpy experience.
