The golden eagle has no natural predators, with its main threat coming from humans who poison or shoot it.
- The golden eagle last bred in Wales during the 18th century, after which hunting made it extinct.
- Most of the UK's breeding pairs are in Scotland (more than 400 in 2003), although some have been reintroduced to Ireland in recent years.
- The banning of certain pesticides since the 1960s has helped the population to recover, along with efforts to improve habits for the eagles to live in.
- The birds can have a wingspan of more than 2 metres.
- The golden eagle has a varied diet and will prey on a variety of creatures depending on their habitat. In Scotland, they target hares and grouse, and seabirds in coastal areas.
