There was one…now there are two chicks!

After bringing you the exciting news that one eaglet had hatched last week, we are thrilled to announce that the second egg hatched on Friday afternoon!

The two eaglets seem to be doing fine and both parents are sharing nest duties to care for the chicks.

Nest duties include bringing fish to the nest and feeding the young, as well as brooding, where the Sea-Eagle sits on the nest to keep the chicks warm.chicks on nest being fed

Over the next 10 weeks or so the eaglets are expected to grow until they take fledge, that is their first flight.

Don’t forget you can see all the action on EagleCAM, a 24-hour live stream of the nest in Newington Nature Reserve.
