The huge sea eagles have again got air under the wings at home.

In about 100 years they were giant birds extinct in Denmark, but now they have again been given klofæste in the Danish nature.

Over 100 breeding pairs, is now and brooding on the havørneæg in the huge nests over most of Denmark.

And since the white-tailed eagle genindvandrede as a Danish breeding bird in 1996, the total come to over 1000 havørneunger on the wings here in the country.

“It looks really good, and it’s really a success story, where people in Denmark to a very large extent have taken the great eagles to,” says Kim Skelmose.

He is the leader of Project Eagle, Danish Ornithological Association, which minutely monitors watching eagles activities at home.

Among other things, send you on now, the eighth season direct reality tv from the edge of the nest on the havørnereden at Hyllekrog, Lolland, where all through the ø can follow in the family life of a few of Northern europe’s largest birds of prey.

“There has been laid three eggs in the nest this year, but on Monday lost the pair, unfortunately one egg at a black accident. The female came to touch the egg, as she laid herself down to brood. But the two remaining eggs are also fine, so fingers crossed that it ends up with the fledglings,” says Kim Skelmose to B. T.

Both the sea eagles and other birds of prey are quite vulnerable to interference, while they breed. Therefore ørnerederne in Denmark in many places protected with robust signage that is typically in a radius of 300 metres are asking people not to go closer.

“But in the current coronatid is the increased migration out of the forests, some sites have started to give some problems for the eagles. Therefore, we urge earnestly people to remember to keep a distance and respect the rating by the owners,” says Kim Skelmose.

the white-tailed eagle is one of the Danish species of birds, whose eggs hatch at the earliest in the year, and in some of the nests are already there come small fry now. Therefore, it can be problematic if several hundred skovgæster gets too close, so forældrefuglene be disturbed and you may see itself forced to leave the nest.

“It may cost a ynglesucces, for example, a crow or a raven can immediately take advantage of it, if forældrefuglene is scared away. Crows are lightning fast, and a havørneunge to have any time of experience to be able to cope with a crow,” adds the head of Project Eagle.

in addition to the well over 100 pairs of breeding sea eagles home to Denmark, four to six pairs of the slightly smaller golden eagle, which is also genindvandret as a breeding bird.

“The halser little after in the number and can so far not to the same extent establish a large population. Kongeørnene has just a slightly different cycle in the breeding season and not quite as many cubs per year. litter as havørnene. But we don’t know exactly why it is particularly havørnene, which has gone forward,” acknowledges Kim Skelmose.

The Danish golden eagles got last year only three cubs on the wings. The corresponding figures for the havørnene was 133.

In the metropolitan area can be seen bald eagles at the poppy field in copenhagen, at the Roskilde Fjord in zealand in denmark, forests. On the South is Brændegårdssøen a secure site, and in Jutland, both the wadden sea and the Egaa Engso at Aarhus bid on breeding white-tailed eagles.
