Goda nyheter – Havsörnar återvänder till södra England

För 240 år sedan utrotades havsörnen i södra England. Nu tycks arten äntligen vara på väg tillbaka på samma sätt som i Skottland. Så här skriver Mother Nature Network på sin hemsida:


"But last August, hope took flight again on the tenuous wings of six baby raptors. The chicks, as The Guardian reports, were released on the Isle of Wight, in the hope they would someday reclaim their place in the skies of southern Britain.

"The return of these spectacular birds to England is a real landmark for conservation," Tony Juniper of governmental advisory board Natural England, told the newspaper.

"I very much hope that it will also provide a practical demonstration of the fact that we can actually reverse the historic decline of our depleted natural environment."

Indeed, the eagles' return is a concerted effort among government and conservation groups modeled after a similar success in Scotland. Back in the 1970s, Scotland released a handful of white-tailed eagles, also called sea eagles, and spent the next few decades watching them multiply. Today, there are an estimated 130 breeding pairs in Scotland. That's a ringing success for birds that don't breed for their first five years of life, making their expansion an extremely slow-going affair.

The six babies were taken from among that group — with a world of hope riding on those little wings."
