In 2012 a young Golden Eagle is found with two broken legs after suffering a lingering death not far from Brechin, possibly caused by a spring trap set by a local game-keeper or some other malicious act. Staged as it grows dark within a crow trap,this is my interpretation of a justified revenge by the white ghost of the murdered eagle. Mount Battock in the background.
