Bill Bailey's birdwatching bonanza

Mull's sea eagles are featured in a forthcoming episode of comedian Bill Bailey's new show on Sky 1.  Mull is the venue for some of the show's birdwatching challenges, including tracking down a sea eagle at Loch Frisa.

Bill is quoted as saying "I've always had a passion for wildlife and birds in particular, so I relished this opportunity to camp out in some lovely corners of Britain and spot some beautiful birds.  Hopefully this show will encourage more people to celebrate our extraordinarily diverse birdlife, while at the same time enjoying the great British countryside."

The Mull episode features journalist Donal Macintyre and TV presenter Jayne Middlemiss undertaking a series of challenges to spot and photograph several birds, including hooded crows.
