65.The reintroduction of the white-tailed eagle to Ireland

Torgeir Nygård, Duncan Halley, Allan Mee

Project report 2009, NINA REPORT 583

“A programme to reintroduce the white tailed eagle Haliaeetus albicilla to Ireland, where the spe-cies became extinct in the early 20th century, commenced in 2005. The work is managed in Ireland by the Golden Eagle Trust; in Norway collection activities are organised by NINA and the Norwe-gian Ornithological Society with the assistance of a team of expert volunteers. The first young birds were collected in Trøndelag, Norway and released in Kerry, Ireland in 2007. Here we report on progress so far, including collection activities in 2009, the third of five planned years of collection and release of young white-tailed eagles.”

66.Finnish White-tailed sea-eagles Haliaeetus albicilla in satellite tracking

2009/2010

"The White-tailed sea-eagle working group within WWF Finland decided in early 2009 to start a joint project with the Finnish Museum of Natural History (University of Helsinki). The aim is to collect detailed data of the movements of White-tailed sea-eagles as they move around in our coastal areas through the year from the south-western archipelago and the Åland Islands to the corners of the Gulf of Bothnia and the Gulf of Finland."

68."It is not clear what ingested substance is destroying these rare eagles

Environmentalists and eagle observers are worried about the white-tailed eagles, because in addition to one bird in Hiiumaa and two in Läänemaa found suffering from poisoning last year , two more were found dead in Southern Estonia.

At the end of last week eagle carcasses were found at Lindi, Pärnumaa and Suislepp, Viljandimaa. The eagle from Hiiumaa that was brought to the Nigula animal shelter is now recovering.

Both perished birds have been brought to the Nigual Animal Shelter, to be brought on to the laboratory of Tartu Agricultural University for dissection and analyses. It is hoped that the analyses there will provide on answer to the question of what poison has taken the life of by now four strictly protected eagles.

„The most recently perished white-tailed eagles were well-nourished adults”, says shelter director Kaja Kübar, adding that the young eagle found dead at Nõva had a good reserve of fat.

Referring to the results of teh dissection of one of the birds found at Nõva, Kaja Kübar excludes having eaten oil-smeared birds as cause of death. “There were no remains of naphta products on feathers or in the digestive tract. But the bird’s stomach lacked the inner lining, and the organs were dehydrated”, she says.

Urmas Sellis from the Eagle Club asserts that there has not been such a large-scale death of white-tailed eagles earlier. During the last few weeks four birds have already lost their lives. “Usually there are one – two perished birds per year” he says.

In connection with the extraordinary deaths of the white-tailed eagles Kaja Kübar asks all who find a dead eagle, and also other disabled birds of prey, to inform the Nigula Rehabilitation Centre, telephone 5 045 891 or the emergency hotline of the Environmental Inspectorate (keskkonnainspektsioon), telephone 1313."

Not quite sure that I got the numbers & history right: 2 in 2008 + 2 this year, 2009, I think.

69.Growth and demography of a re-introduced population of White-tailed Eagles Haliaeetus albicilla

Richard J. Evans, Jeremy D. Wilson, Arjun Amar, Andrew Douse, Alison Maclennan, Norman Ratcliffe and Philip Whitfield

"White-tailed Eagles Haliaeetus albicilla became extinct in Britain in 1918 following prolonged persecution. Intensive conservation efforts since the 1970s have included the re-introduction of the species to Britain through two phases of release of Norwegian fledglings in western Scotland in 1975–85 and 1993–98. Population growth and breeding success have been monitored closely to the present day, aided by the use of patagial tags to individually mark most released birds as well as a high proportion of wild-bred nestlings. This study reviews the growth and demography of this re-introduced population, and makes comparisons with other European populations."

70.White-tailed eagles in Greenland: Masters of the skies

The Official Tourism and Business Site of Greenland, 08.03.23

"Formerly, the white-tailed eagle was not very well accepted because sheep farmers claimed that it hunted lamb. It was said to have a negative effect on the interests of both fishermen and sheep farmers, but this situation has fortunately been turned around through information campaigns and protection legislation."

71.Nest-site attendance of the resident White-tailed Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) outside the breeding season

Deivis DEMENTAVIČIUS, Rimgaudas TREINYS

Lithuania

Acta Zoologica Lituanica, 2009, Volumen 19, Numerus 1

"The territorial pairs of White-tailed Sea Eagle are mainly sedentary and highly faithful to breeding territories and nest-sites. Due to a dramatic population decrease, many recent studies deal with the population status and habitat requirements of the species, but contemporary data on the nest-site attendance activity of the recovered population outside the breeding season are scarce. In the present study, we analysed the bonds of resident adult Sea Eagles with their nest-sites outside the breeding season (20 September – 20 February). We found that Sea Eagles actively attend their nest-sites during the non-breeding season, however, nest-site attendance varied between months, but not between years. Besides, almost half of the checked pairs repaired old or built new nests long before incubation, during September–December."

73.Phylogeny of nematodes from birds of prey

Birds of prey host a wide variety of endoparasites. The majority of these endoparasites are nematodes. They can be found mainly in the digestive and respiratory system. (…) The aim of the study was to evaluate a method for rapid species identification, to construct a phylogeny of parasitic nematodes from birds of prey and to investigate cospeciation events between hosts and their parasites. A total of 153 birds of prey of 15 species were examined for nematodes in their digestive and respiratory tract. In 52 % of them parasitic nematodes of 14 species were found.
