The staff and visitors to visit Nature reserve Abernethy, Royal Bird Protection Society RSPB Scotland witnessedeagle bird White tail lays eggs from 8/4. They secretly set up cameras to record live footage of the eagle incubating the eggs and hatching them.
The camera is hidden in a stick about three meters away from the eagle’s nest so as not to disturb the birds, but still captures the entire moment from incubation to the moment the eggs hatch into young birds.
White-tailed eagle appeared in Scotland, hidden camera recorded close-up of hatching eggs.
A representative of Scotland’s Abernethy Nature Reserve in Perthshire describes the incubation of white tailed eagle is ‘a special moment’. The white-tailed eagle is a very large bird. They are 66 cm to 94 cm long with a wingspan of 1.78 meters to 2.45 meters. The wingspan is long, the largest of any eagle.
To avoid disturbing the birds, the staff kept the location of the nest a secret. Two eagles Finn and Sohna take turns protecting their nests from snow and storms.
For young eagles, the first two weeks are crucial as they are now unable to regulate their own body temperature and are completely dependent on their parents to shelter them from the worst of the Cairngorms spring.
After a period of incubation, the eggs hatch into young. Young white-tailed eagles usually stay in their nests, and their parents come back to feed them for the first 12 weeks.
After leaving the nest, they remain close to their parents and depend on them throughout the fall. Only then will they find their own territory.
This is the first time professionals have used this type of filming in Scotland. Previously, hatching was successfully documented in Estonia and Latvia.
