Cue The Who's "I'm Free"

I don't want to get too carried away about this, because there's nothing special about eagles. They may be symbols of majesty and the glories of nature, but so are stoats and butterflies, in their own way. But honestly: a golden eagle has been just been released from captivity after 27 years. 27 years in which it didn't have enough room to get properly airborne. And now it's spreading its wings and learning to fly again. Literally for once. The symbolism centres of my brain are overloading. Three cheers for letting great big old eagles out of their cages.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
