Saturday Sea-eagles

What to do on a Saturday afternoon when your team isn’t playing – watch White-bellied Sea-eagles at the lake!

While the level at Cairn Curran has dropped significantly this actually makes it easier to see these magnificent birds. I observed three individuals yesterday, all immatures, and at one point all were quite close together. I’m intrigued about this as it is most usual for more than two offspring to fledge. It’s possible that they may have been a mix of younger birds from the past couple of seasons, or perhaps a young bird on the move from another breeding site.
