One of our best known national institutions, working tirelessly to protect endangered birds and their habitats, not just in Britain, but worldwide. The sea eagles on Mull, which both Simon King and I have spent many hours with, were re-introduced and are carefully monitored by the RSPB.

Well worth checking out!
