Golden Eagles a time were found all over Europe but over the years killed because of large-scaled land use, illegal killings by sheep farmers and game keepers.
The population was exterminated in England and Wales be 1850 and Ireland by 1912. Despite the widespread killings a small number of breading pairs survived in the South- West of Scotland. With the current breading programming in place, there are now 431 breeding pairs with all but one living in Scotland.
