156.Rare eagle rescued in Bedlington. The young male is one of 16 infants which was released by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) into a forest at Fife, Scotland

“A Bird of prey rarely found in the English countryside has turned up in Northumberland. The white-tailed sea eagle, a bird only resident in the British isles in Scotland, was discovered in Bedlington on Friday night."

157.A young sea eagle seems to have taken a liking to the Fife town of Methil. RSPB Scotland confirmed the bird was a young male released just last month. September 2011

"This bird is quickly becoming a bit of a local celebrity," a spokeswoman said. "Sea eagles are regularly spotted in towns around Norway, where these birds are from, so it is a real privilege that residents in Methil and Wemyss are being treated to the same stunning views.

159.Visitors flock in to Tentsmuir, November 2011

“A sea eagle, also known as a white tailed eagle, has been seen at the SNH reserve recently. The bird has wing tags marked with a red T which identify it as one of the east coast sea eagle reintroduction birds released this year.
The young male was released in August and is spending its first Scottish year visiting sites in Fife, from Methil to the Firth of Tay.”

160.White-tailed eagle does its bit to keep archipelago’s feral mink population in check. Minks avoid swimming between islands when eagles are about

Source: Helsingin Sanomat / First published in print 18.9.2009. By Pyry Lapintie in Turku
http://www.hs.fi/english/article/White- ... 5249508632

Homepage of the researcher Pälvi Salo
”In practice the only natural enemy of outer archipelago mink is the white-tailed sea eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla). While the numerical impacts of eagle predation on mink may not be that large, the nonlethal impacts of this predation risk on mink behavior might be. Results of a radiotracking study showed that at least female mink appear to reduce their movements between islands with increasing sea eagle predation risk. ”

161.Risk induced by a native top predator reduces alien mink movements

Pälvi Salo, Mikael Nordström, Robert L. Thomson, Erkki Korpimäki
Article first published online: 8 JUL 2008 © 2008 The Authors. Journal compilation © 2008 British Ecological Society, Journal of Animal Ecology, 77, 1092–1098

Summary

1
Nonlethal predation effects may have stronger impacts on prey populations than direct predation impacts, and this should also apply to intraguild predation. The consequences of such interactions become especially important if invasive, and potentially destructive alien predators act as intraguild prey.

2
We studied the predation-risk impacts of a re-colonizing native top predator, Haliaeetus albicilla (white-tailed sea eagle), on the movements of Mustela vison (American mink), an alien predator in Europe. We radiocollared 20 mink in two study areas in the outer archipelago of the Baltic Sea, South-west Finland, during 2004 and 2005. In the archipelago, mink home ranges incorporate many islands, and mink are most predisposed to eagle predation while swimming between islands. Observed swimming distances of mink were compared to distances expected at random, and deviations from random swimming were explained by mink distance from nearest eagle nest, number of eagle observations near mink location, and mink home-range size.

3
Mink reduced their swimming distances with increasing sea eagle predation risk: for females, the reduction was 10% for an increase of 10 eagle observations, and 5% for each kilometre towards an eagle nest. Conclusions for males were restricted by their small sample size.

4
Our results suggest that female mink modify their behaviour according to eagle predation risk, which may reduce their population growth and have long-term cascading effects on lower trophic levels including bird, mammal and amphibian populations in the archipelago. Ecosystem restoration by bringing back the top predators may be one way of mitigating alien predator effects on native biota.

166.Newlywed wildlife fans give their wedding cash to Scots sea eagles, October 2011

By Moira Kerr

"A pair of lovebirds refused presents on their wedding day so they could help Mull's sea eagles instead. Wildlife fans Andrew Barton, 35, and Charlotte Oldham, 29, gave guests white-tailed sea eagle pins, instead of wedding favours when they tied the knot on Friday. And instead of presents, family and friends were asked to make a donation to the RSPB's work to boost the sea eagle population on Mull."

169.The eggs of the extinct Egyptian population of White-tailed Eagle Haliaeetus albicilla

By Golo Maurer, Douglas G. D. Russell, Friederike Woog & Phillip Cassey
Received 26 November 2009
Published in Vol. 130(3) of The Bulletin of the British Ornithologists´ Club

Summary: Little is known concerning the biology of the now extinct Egyptian population of White-tailed Eagle Haliaeetus albicilla, and few specimens remain in museums to assess its alleged subspecific status. Here we describe three eggs collected near Lake Manzala and review the collection data and anecdotal reports about this species, to provide a better understanding of the biology of White-tailed Eagles in this southernmost part of their former breeding range.

171.A White-Tailed Sea-Eagle savaged a dog, Finland, February 2012

A dog which was guarding sheep was torn by a white-tailed sea-eagle (WTE) on Tuesday in Karinranta, Siikajoki [on the coast of the northern part of the Gulf of Bothnia]. The dog had been out for about two hours when its owner Kari Kurikka went out to look for it. He says that nothing could be done to help the dog when he found it: its stomach had been completely ripped open. The commissioner for predator issues of the local Game-keeping and hunting association of Siikajokilaakso Esko Kulha visited the scene on Wednesday and says that he has never seen anything like that in his long hunter’s career. “The marks in the fresh snow were unambiguous: the attack had come from air.”

Kurikka says that the WTE has been a frequent visitor near his sheep-yard all winter, and it had tried to catch the dog already once before while the dog was sitting on their doorstep. Mrs. Kurikka happened to open the door at the same time as the WTE made an attempt on the dog and the dog was saved that time. Mr. Kurikka tells that the WTE captured several lambs during summer. He also says that the WTE is exceptionally fearless: it keeps look-out in a birch next to the sheep-yard and is not disturbed even when people drive by the tree with a snow scooter.

Esko Kulha believes that the WTE is the same individual which he saw destroying some black grouse-decoys “into smithereens” in Siikajoki-area last autumn. “This is such a bird of prey that has become exceptionally vicious. One should look after one’s dog while going out in wild terrains and on sea ice.” says Kulha.

173.White-tailed Eagle online database available (observations & breeding data)

The conference in Illmitz 2007 has stressed the need of an International database. In the frame of the DANUBEPARKS network, the Duna-Drava National Park in cooperation with MME /BirdLife Hungary has established this database for South-East and Central Europe. Zsolt Nagy presented this tool and the actual status (e.g. more than 1400 breeding records are included so far) during the International DANUBEPARKS White-tailed Eagle Conference Szeksard, 17th-18th October, 2011.

Perspective for the International Database
    - Database will be embedded on the DANUBEPARKS website http://www.danubeparks.org
    - A year by year update of the breeding sites is inevitable
    - Therefore, for each Danube country one national coordinator has already been defined or will be defined very soon to keep the breeding data up to date and completed at the end of the year
    - Further steps will be taken to invite also the wider public to contribute their observations to the database
    - The international database could be a used as base for large scale analyzes, e.g. habitat models as presented for Austria could be of high interest for the Lower Danube
