Did anyone else watch the Sea Eagle camera?
Also,does anyone know when the next cam is starting? thanks
Hey Nathan - EagleCam is an initiative of our parent organisation - BirdLife Australia - and the birds are just 50 m from our office at Newington Whenever they start honking we all rush out of the office to spot them...
Plans are underway for the installation of the new camera - not sure of an exact date but it will be fairly soon I believe. The pair are still sighted around the place and I think were honking in the woodland last week but are not building on the nest as of yet.
that's great Holly!
My local Penrith pair have started their courtship behaviour. I've observed their tandem flights and honking while flying and perching together, allopreening not far from the nest they built in August last year after their long-standing tree (of some 80 years) was destroyed in strong winds of last July.
Here is the link again for you Nathan:
According to the link below cameras will be installed in early May for the 2012 breeding season. This is copied from the above site:
There will be a special CHAT session on Saturday 5th May 2012 from 7:00am to 7:00pm nest time.

Hey guys - just saw a new update. The sea eagles have started a new nest: see facebook page
For those without facebook -
Because there had been no activity on last years nest we arranged a visit with a Sydney Olympic Park Ranger (Bert) to see if there was any new nest activity. We found the new nest about 70 meters east of the old nest. The position they have chosen is very high in the tree and exposed to the wind. It is a good roosting tree and would be good for fledglings branching. There is not much support for the nest and the pile of sticks below confirms this. There is a tree about 20 meters away from the nest that we will be able to install the cameras in if they persist with this nest. We will keep monitoring the situation and keep you informed of updates.
Bumping this up - EagleCam is back up and running: http://sea-eaglecam.org/video.html
No eggs yet but mum and dad are visitng the nest regularly
hmm,does anyone know why the camera is at a different angle this time??

oh, ok holly, thanks for that
Another bump for EagleCAM - the estimated due date for hatching is the 21st of August.
I was just talking with Geoff Hutchinson last night Holly. He mentioned that Dr Stephen Debus will be a guest chatter on the eagle-cam chat on Saturday August 25 between 08:30-09:30 AEST and I think 14:30-15:30.

Wonderful! The camera (and the birds) would have copped a battering in today's winds.
The eaglet hatched overnight
I would love to check my local pair at Castlereagh, but I fear any human disturbance will potentiall cause desertion. Hence I will approach them late September/early October.
And we have another! Because of the angles we couldn't be sure that there were two eggs, only one had been seen. However we have had confirmation that a second eaglet has hatched today.
