East coast birds release program:
by Frank Burns from the Lady Jane May 2016
Adult White tailed Sea Eagle
by kind permission of Sindri Skulason
Good views of White tailed Sea
Eagles can be had from many areas on the island, and a circular route from
Salen to Loch na Keal round to Loch Scridain and through Glen More, back
to Craignure will provide plenty of opportunities to see both Golden Eagles
and White tailed Sea Eagles. Scarisdale Rocks in Loch na Keal is
another favorite place, these birds can sit around for hours on the rocks
provided they are not disturbed.Scan any and all of the hills for Golden
Eagles which can be seen in most areas.
|note the tag style of these
(and other) East coast young birds in another release program .
A white tag with a distinctive
black bar above and below the letter or number
We would expect to find these
birds over on the west at some time during this winter and any sightings
(with tag details) would be greatly appreciated.
Each year the young birds
are tagged on the upper wing only, with a coloured tag with a white
or black letter. Different wing tags are also used on some other birds
and these have a single colour with a white base plus a number.
It is more valuable information
when reports include tag details.
