LAUWERSOOG – Staatsbosbeheer are thinking about having a webcam if the two white-tailed eagles in the Lauwersmeer area will breed.

Forester Jan Willems is optimistic about that happening next spring. “That would be the second time ever in the Netherlands. Next year, our male and female will be mature.”

September 2009. Scotland’s breeding population of sea eagles has reached two landmarks – with the highest number of breeding pairs and more young successfully fledged that at any time since the birds were first reintroduced in 1975: here.

Natural England, and the RSPB, assisted by the Forestry Commission, have been looking at the feasibility of re-introducing the white-tailed eagle – also known as the sea eagle – to East Anglia, and the Suffolk coast is being considered as a possible future home for white-tailed eagles: here.

  1. Endangered bird found nesting in Olympic precinct

    Posted 8 hours 34 minutes ago

    A white-bellied sea eagle chick has been discovered in restored woodlands and waterways in the Olympic precinct at Homebush Bay in Sydney’s west.

    The Minister for Western Sydney, David Borger, says the rare and endangered chick is nesting with its family.

    A spokesman for the Minister says the bird’s breeding ground will not be affected by a V8 Supercar race that is to be staged there next month.

    Mr Borger says the discovery is an example of how well the biodiversity program is operating in the area.

    “Over the next four weeks, the chick will keep returning to the nest while it tests its wings and it keeps feeding from its parents.

    “This is something we wouldn’t have expected 20 years ago – about 160 hectares areas on contaminated land and about 9 million cubic metres were remediated at Sydney Olympic Park.”
