The lone life of the Lake Districts's golden eagle
England's only resident golden eagle is to star in a new BBC wildlife series.

The golden eagle was filmed at Haweswater in the Lake District earlier this year for a new series highlighting some of the UK's finest wildlife.

The male eagle occupies a remote valley site at Haweswater which is owned by United Utilities and managed in a partnership with the RSPB.

Special viewpoints are set up in summer at Riggindale valley for visitors to the watch the spectacular bird of prey.

The RSPB's David Hirst said: "We were delighted that the BBC decided to film part of their exciting new series in the Lake District and to highlight Haweswater's very special and spectacular golden boy.

"Although the male eagle has been on his own since his mate died, he is still very active and always thrills visitors to Haweswater with his massive size and spectacular flying displays.

"We remain hopeful that a new female golden eagle will settle in the Lakes."

The eagle sequence is scheduled for broadcast during the Hands On Nature programme on 5 December.
