Second white-tailed eagle nest in Biesbosch national park


This video is about a young sea eagle in winter in Sweden.

Dutch Vroege Vogels radio reports today that a sea eagle nest has been discovered in Biesbosch national park.

This nest is in the part of the park in Zuid-Holland province. The other part of the park is in Noord-Brabant province.

After an absence of centuries for this species, white-tailed eagles started nesting again in the Netherlands in 2006, first in Oostvaardersplassen national park. Ever since 2012, this raptor species has nested in the Noord-Brabant part of the Biesbosch.

The new discovery is the first white-tailed eagle nest in Zuid-Holland province, It is also the first time ever for two eagle nests in the same nature reserve.

This new nest was discovered late in the nesting season as it was hidden well.

Each Biesbosch eagle nest has two eaglets, making for eight eagles at the nests, plus a single eagle, a two-year-old young female, flying around the Biesbosch.

The sea eaglets are expected to fledge soon.

At the moment, there are two ospreys in the Biesbosch as well.
