A rescue mission to save a famous BBC sea eagle chick after it fell 30ft from its nest on Mull has been successful.
The eight-week-old chick became a TV star on the BBC Springwatch show and is currently being viewed from around the world on a live webcam.
The eagle was seen at the weekend but by Sunday evening the nest was empty.
Worried bird watchers raised the alarm and two tree climbers from Forestry Commission Scotland later found it in the undergrowth.
After a thorough check, the chick was confirmed to be in a healthy condition.
