This coming Sunday (30th of October), East Scotland Sea Eagles will feature on Countryfile. This will be shown at 18:25 on BBC1, and will show some of this year's birds on their big day being released into the wild! Don't miss it!
Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Wild Connections sea eagle tracking event on Wednesday evening! The outing was a success with dry weather, and great views of four young sea eagles. The group got to grips with the radio tracking device before setting off to try and find some eagles as they settled down to roost. We were lucky enough to see three juveniles from the 2011 release cohort (Red E, P and 2) and also a very exciting sighting of a 2009 male (Turquoise Z). This is only the second time that a 2 year old bird had been seen at this roost, and great to see that he’s returned to see how the new birds are getting on! I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did!
On Wednesday the 12th of October I will be leading a Sea Eagle tracking event at “Wild Connections”, highland Perthshire’s wildlife festival. It will run from 2pm until 7pm meeting at Birnam. We will be radio tracking the birds that have been released since 2007, and hopefully get some glimpses of them too! Visit the Wild Connections website for more details and for online booking. www.wildconnections.org.uk .There are limited spaces so don’t leave it too late! Hope to see you there!
