For the first time in 140 years, white tailed eagles on Hiddensee

The last evidence is from 1881.
There has been a couple on Hiddensee since last year :2thumbsup:

there are a total of 101 breeding pairs in Mecklenburg Vorpommern this year. In 2019 there were 107 breeding pairs.
there are 90 eaglets this year. :D

The largest population is at the Anklamer Stadtbruch. (It's a breeding ground for countless cormorants)
The food supply is so large there that the nests are close together so that the eagles can literally look each other in the eye. There are 12 couples in a small area.

Další masakr u Velkého Boru /KT/.
Čtyři otrávení orli mořští na jednom místě!
Co to bude příště?
Pocit marnosti, vztek a beznaděj. O tomto víkendu jsme našli další čtyři otrávené mořské orly. Čtyři majestátní králové nebes s rozpětím křídel přes dva metry uhynuli v nervové křeči se zatnutými pařáty, sedící na patách s poloroztaženými křídly a skloněnou hlavou.
Pro nás jeden z nejdrastičtějších úhynů mořských orlů jsme řešili tuto sobotu (6. 2. 2021) kousek od hnojiště uprostřed ohradníkem obehnané pastviny pro skot pod Velkým Borem na Klatovsku........

Four poisoned sea eagles in one place!
What's next?
Feeling futile, angry and hopeless. This weekend we found four more poisoned sea eagles. The four majestic kings of heaven with a wingspan of over two meters died in a nervous spasm with claws clasped, sitting on their heels with their wings outstretched and their heads bowed.

For us, this Saturday (February 6, 2021), one of the most drastic deaths of sea eagles, we solved a short distance from the manure in the middle of a fenced pasture for cattle under Velký Bor in the Klatovy region.
A place where few lay people come and a place where someone exports animal by-products (residues) from slaughterhouses to a pile of manure. However, this time someone poured poison (Carbofuran) over pockets, skins, feathers, poultry runners and other organic residues.
The birds, which also function as health police in nature and destroy mainly carcasses, then learned to walk here for the remains, and this is exactly what happened to them. Everyone took something from the pile of poisonous remains, and a particularly torturous death twisted them right after the first few bites.

The case was handed over to the Police of the Czech Republic for investigation, which, according to an autopsy and analysis of the content of elected dead predators and secured traps, then decides how the case will be classified and investigated.
Even today, however, I dare say that 99% of these are intentional crime, animal cruelty, illegal handling and use of toxic substances, unauthorized disposal of animal by-products, poaching and the killing of several specially protected and critically endangered animals! Moreover, in this area, unfortunately, this is far from an isolated case; similar cases have a tradition here.
Given the seriousness of the case and the damage caused, we are considering a financial reward for helping to clarify this case. In the meantime, however, we have to wait for the individual analyzes, the further course of the investigation and especially the opinion of the authorities that should deal with the case first by law. However, if someone already has specific knowledge about these cases today, we will be happy if you help us to clarify this massacre of rare predators. Thank you.

GT.. sorry I'm not familiar with czech!

Gift-Alarm in Wegberg – Vier tote Greifvögel im Tüschenbroicher Wald gefunden

GT:
Poison alarm in Wegberg - four dead birds of prey found in the Tüschenbroich forest

"Wegberg. In and around the nature reserve (NSG) "Tüschenbroicher Wald" near Wegberg-Uevekoven, four dead birds of prey and suspected poison bait were found over the weekend. As reported by the Committee against Bird Murder, the strictly protected birds - three buzzards and a hawk - were reported by walkers and were recovered by experts from the association yesterday afternoon. “The hawk had a full crop, so it must have eaten something shortly before it died. The three buzzards were lying near a meat bait that gave off a clearly atypical chemical smell, ”reports ornithologist Marvin Fehn from the Committee against Bird Murder. ... "

"According to the committee, the current finds are not an isolated case, but are part of a whole series of criminal bird poisoning around the NSG Tüschenbroicher Wald, which dates back to 2008 and which have already killed dozens of animals. In March and April 2020 alone, four poisoned buzzards, another hawk, a dead pigeon prepared as bait and two chicken eggs treated with poison were found in the area. Laboratory tests have now confirmed that both the pigeon and the eggs were prepared with a prohibited, highly toxic insecticide that was later detected in the dead birds of prey. According to the committee, this is a neurotoxin from the carbamate group, which is also extremely dangerous for humans."

White-tailed eagle presumably injured by wind turbine :sad:
Hamburg (dpa / lno) - According to the Hamburg environmental authority, a sea eagle was probably injured by a wind turbine in the port. Swan father Olaf Nieß saved the bird on Tuesday, said a spokesman. The eagle was operated on on Wednesday. "Unfortunately, you had to amputate part of the wing. We hope that the bird will get through," said Björn Marzahn, spokesman for the authorities.

"The bone was split a bit wider than we had hoped," added Nieß. It is 99 percent certain that the bird got caught in a wind turbine. It was located on the site of a metal processing plant in the Dradenau area under the wind turbines there.

At least the authorities were able to provide the sea eagle with suitable food. On Wednesday night the fishery inspector found seven men who illegally caught smelt on the Dove-Elbe in Neuengamme. They had already pulled several hundred kilos of fish from the river, it was said. The inspectors put the still viable smelt back into the water. Some of the rest were to serve as fresh food for the injured eagle.

With a wingspan of up to 2.40 meters, sea eagles are among the largest birds of prey in Central Europe. The animals are strictly protected by an EU directive. Several media had previously reported on the found of the injured eagle.
