White-tailed eagles of The Netherlands breed; second year


White-tailed eagle, and raven
From Dutch NOS TV:

The white-tailed eagle couple, which reared a chick last year in Oostvaardersplassen [nature reserve in the central Netherlands], is preparing their nest for this year.

The couple were the first white-tailed eagles breeding in The Netherlands since the Middle Ages.

People cannot come close to the nest; however, Staatsbosbeheer has put a webcam near the nest.

Beginning on 8 March, internauts can look at the nest at www.staatsbosbeheer.nl.

Last year’s chick is still often seen near the parents.
