NSA South East Region - meeting on the White Tailed Sea Eagle Project

Date: 26th September 2023

Time: 7pm

Location: Lee Farm,Patching,Worthing,West Sussex BN13 3XJ

On Tuesday evening South East Region members joined with those from the West Sussex branch of the NFU at Patching, Nr Worthing, to hear an update on the White Tailed Sea Eagle reintroduction project based in the Isle of Wight from the resident Forestry England Project Officer, Steve Egerton-Read.

During an informative round table discussion in the local pub Steve outlined the history of the Eagles in the U.K. and the rationale/objectives behind the reintroduction of this apex predator.  Of particular interest and relevance are the studies that he and his colleagues are undertaking to identify the dietary preferences of these majestic birds. The results of this work are soon to be published and will also be reported on in future issues of “Sheep Farmer”.
