Sea Eagle.

Recommended Posts

An immature White Tailed Eagle (Of the Genus,Sea Eagle), spotted over the Forest of Dean yesterday being mobbed by Buzzards.

Probably one of the six eaglets released on the Isle of Wight last year, from established breeding sources in Scotland.(over 100 pairs).

The UK's largest bird of prey, 4th biggest eagle in the world with a wingspan of 2.4mt/8ft.

There will soon be reports of its demise with allegations of the existence of shotgun pellets.

Only a couple of months ago a Kestrel was shot near Newent, (West Glos),......the culprit was never found, although people heard the shot and saw the bird fall.

It was taken to a local wildlife hospital but could not be saved.

At Distance ? Wouldn't you see the bird fall before the shot ??????????

Photographic evidence showing the injuries prove the shotgun theory, I would think it was shot as it hovered in the air, a fair amount of the breast was damaged, and also the inner flight feathering on that side of the male bird, two people were witness to the bird dropping from the sky after a gunshot, that is all I know.

Photographic evidence available at   Raptor persecution UK (Kestrel shot in Gloucestershire)
