:puzzled: Has anyone had any information on Timmu & Teele, or Linda & Sulev? Perhaps someone has been in the area & noticed young eagles hunting or fishing? It would be nice to hear some news if anyone has any.

The site where Linda and Sulev (probably also Teele and Timmu) hunt, it is quite wild nature reserve, so no big chance to meet there humans. Therefore very rarely observations of these eagles appear.
No data if somebody has seen them last time.

Thank you, Urmas. I knew it was only a very small chance anyone might be able to see them, but I hoped someone had done & could report. I'm sure the young eagles are ranging far & wide, getting used to the big world.

In the absence of WTEs to watch, read this on US bald eagles 'in the wild,' which I received in a circulated email:

'January of this year, 2010, the weather stayed so cold in St. Louis, Missouri and Alton, Illinois that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal. They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together. Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell. They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.'

There are photos to show what happened. See:
EDIT viewtopic.php?p=82660 There, on the General Interest Forum, Alice has uploaded the photos. She tracked down their true origin in Alaska! See her, and Kitty's, comments there. MANY thanks for giving us the truth of the matter! :2thumbsup:

News from Looduskalender: the WTE camera will be online again within a month or so, after some (surely well-deserved) service, http://www.looduskalender.ee/en/node/8484
And of course we look forward to the winter feeding camera too

YESS!! :loveshower:
it's great that the camera will be on already in the autumn. :nod: it's good to see how often the eagles visit the nest before the 'real' onset of the breeding season and is there competition of the nest etc.. last year the Pontu camera started in January, on the 25th, and someone had already been there in the nest:
http://193.40.133.138/2010/2010-01-25/2 ... -16-23.jpg

i guess that the adult eagles want to stay close to their nets(s) all year round and that's why they don't migrate. a good nest territory is such a valuable resource for them that it's worth keeping an yey on it all the time.

... at least the lens needs some serious washing and wiping! :rolleyes:

In the absence of this webcam and these particular birds: see on for possible distances flown by juveniles.

Sad news this week about a juvenile WTE (2010) that landed at the Isle of May and was found injured at the seal colony on Monday. See Claire Smith's blog for the RSPB East Scotland Sea EagleProject: http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/blogs/ ... pdate.aspx

She wrote: "..... ‘Erik’ (yellow L) present on the Isle of May since the end of August was found with a broken leg in the seal colony on Monday, artist Keith Brockie and warden Alex Ash managed to catch the bird, splint its leg and immobilise it, Colin (who runs the May Princess) then headed over in his rib to bring the bird off. I drove to the vets and initially the prognosis was not too bad as the bird was responding to pinching the foot so the nerves were not completely severed, however, an x-ray on Tuesday morning confirmed that the bone was shattered and so beyond repair and sadly the 5 month old male was put down. Despite picking up some fulmar oil the bird was in good condition and a good weight, so we can only speculate what caused his accident either getting too close to a seal or its pup or landing awkwardly. Either way, everyone involved did everything they could and it is always incredibly sad to lose a bird. However, with 15 of our 19 newly released birds till alive we are still extremely pleased with our survival rates."

Two others of their 2010 juveniles have flown over 100 miles [160 km?] to Ardnamurchan (WEST coast) and as far as the Farne Islands, in Northumberland (NE England) - about 140 miles? [225 km??].
