This is an account of one man's 30 year involvement with England's rarest bird, the Golden eagle. Initially employed by the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) as a senior species protection warden at a secret location in Cumbria, the author describes the intricacies of establishing a protection regime by wardens that would operate for the next 26 years and his efforts to protect and study this iconic species. The Lakeland eagles were at their most productive during his tenure, rearing six eaglets in the next six years before he widened his interest to study eagles in Scotland as well as England.
