Two golden eagles ‘disappear’ from Perthshire grouse moor

Two golden eagles have disappeared “in suspicious circumstances” on the same grouse moor, wildlife presenter Chris Packham has said.

The satellite-tagged birds were being monitored as part of a study into young golden eagles in Scotland.

Adam and Charlie are said to have vanished within hours of each other from the Auchnafree Estate, near Dunkeld in Perthshire, on 18 April.
