News from the Nest – Two eggs laid!

Sea-Eagle on nest with first egg laid

Not one, but two eggs have been laid by our resident White-bellied Sea Eagle this breeding season.

The first was laid at 11.38pm on Friday 26 June, and the second at 5.43am this morning, Tuesday 30 June.

The nest of the Sea-Eagle pair is located in Newington Nature Reserve, Sydney Olympic Park and is being watched intently by people all over the world through EagleCAM, a 24-hour live stream of the nest.

Eagle CAM is an initiative of BirdLife Australia and Sydney Olympic Park Authority that provides a wealth of data on the behaviour of these magnificent birds to assist in their conservation.

The first egg is expected to hatch on 5 August, so stay tuned!
