30 Days Wild
Yesterday evening I was struggling with a migraine and so my wild action for the day involved a brief catch up on a favourite wild webcam. This camera gives an incredible insight into the lives of the 4th largest eagle in the world; the White-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla).
The nest is situated in West Estonia and the pair are raising three chicks this year, which can be an unusual sight. Typically these birds raise one or two chicks, especially in our country. But watching the webcam now, all three seem to be doing great and should be set to fledge the nest in July.
We’re extremely lucky in Scotland that this species is now thriving after their reintroduction (1975 onwards) and we have around 100 breeding pairs. Lets hope they continue to expand, despite ongoing threats from illegal raptor persecution.
