Roy’s latest blog

In his latest blog, Roy looks back at an exciting year for the Foundation; and discusses some encouraging signs for both the Isle of Wight White-tailed Eagles and Poole Harbour Ospreys.

White-tailed Eagles on the Isle of Wight

Three of the Wight-tailed Eagles that we released on the Isle of Wight in August are still on the island, while a fourth is at a private site in Oxfordshire. For the latest on the birds, check out the December blog written by Project Officer, Steve Egerton-Read.

There is more detailed background information on the project here and we also have a Frequently Asked Questions page.

In late August, soon after release, one of the young eagles made a long flight over central London to Essex before returning along the South Coast to the Isle of Wight. For a full description of his travels, click here.

Follow Ospreys Carr and Deshar on migration

This summer we satellite-tagged two juvenile Ospreys at a nest near Carrbridge in the Scottish Highlands. Sadly Carr has died in Morocco, but Deshar has made it to the Senegal coast. You can check out the latest data on our satellite tracking map.

Listen to our latest podcast

In our latest podcast  we talk to two of the Isle of Wight White-tailed Eagle project volunteers, Tracy Dove and Jim Baldwin, as well as Project Officer, Steve Egerton-Read, about the highs and lows of being involved with the project. We also hear about how the eagles are already encouraging more people to think and talk about nature.
