Example text

Many aerial battles ensued but the falcons failed to expel the eagles who only gained respite from attack once they had landed on their own nest. This uneasy situation persisted throughout that year (1947) and the next, when both eagles and peregrines succeeded in rearing one youngster each. Johan Willgohs showed me a cliff face in northern Norway with a pair of Sea Eagles in residence, ravens nesting higher up and a pair of peregrines near the top. The normal clutch is two large white eggs, sometimes one or three and rarely, in some species like the African and Pallas’s Fish Eagles, four eggs.

He later recounted that in this roomy cage, the birds lived contentedly for some five or six years: …until one day it was found that the female had killed and eaten half her mate [presumably its sibling if they had come from the same nest]. On this she was transferred to other hands and when I last heard of her, was undergoing solitary confinement at Chatsworth – certainly an agreeable place of detention for a murderess. John Wolley (1825–1859) It is fascinating that so many of these early accounts refer to Sea Eagles, suggesting how much more familiar they were to local people than golden eagles.

As a baby, Gilgamesh – the Babylonian equivalent of the mighty Hercules – was to be sacrificed but was instead rescued by an eagle. Such complex early myths came to be adopted, modified and distributed far and wide, even attributed to later heroes. Amongst the many myths which have come to be associated with Alexander the Great, for instance, is that he is said to have obtained knowledge of his fields of battle by first flying over them on the back of an eagle. Etana, another mythical hero of the Babylonians, rode on the back of an eagle which fed on snakes.
