White-tailed Eagles at Inchnadamph

January 28th 2010

White-tailed Eagles

Two immature White-tailed Eagles, also referred to as Sea Eagles, were seen near Inchnadamph on 18th January 2010.

They have been around for several days feeding on the abundant rabbits. The carcass of a recently plucked Buzzard suggests it too has featured in the diet of these eagles.

One of them has a white wing tag indicating it was reared on the west coast in 2007. The other has a colour ring on its leg which indicates it too fledged on the west coast, this time in 2008.  Sea Eagles don’t usually breed until they are seven years old.
