White tailed eagles not seen in England for over 240 years have been visiting the North York Moors after making a remarkable 300 mile trip.At least they'll be safe from overzealous policing....
Forestry England and the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation have been leading a project to reintroduce them into the country, releasing the first group on the Isle of Wight last year. Through GPS tracking they’ve been keeping an eye on the young birds as they made their first major trips around the country.
Two of them, G318 and G393 travelled up through the middle of Britain landing and roosting for a while in the the North York Moors National Park.
Now campaigners are appealing for people to keep an eye out for the special birds and if possible get more photographs of them.Unless one shows up on my back garden bird table, that's going to be rather difficult under the current circumstances.
