76.Crimes against nesting eagles in northern Germany. May 2015

Two and a half month ago a WtE nest near the village of Stangheck was destroyed when the tree was cut down. According to the article, this case is not an isolated incident. Several nests and clutches have been vandalised in the region during the last years, and breeding pairs left their territories due to intentional human disturbance.

"The number of white-tailed eagles in Scotland has reached 100 breeding pairs, according to conservationists. The birds, also known as sea eagles, were absent from the UK for nearly 60 years until a re-introduction programme began in 1975. The first young white-tailed eagles from Norway were released on Rum. A total of 82 young eagles were released over 10 years on the island, with the first wild chick fledging on Mull in 1985."
