Really excited to be sharing this video, we’ve had the confirmation that we definitely have a White-Tailed Eagle (Sea Eagle) on the North York Moors. This special bird has been resident here for the last 2 months so it must be liking our well looked after managed moors.
The white-tailed eagle (Sea Eagle) is the largest UK bird of prey, it has Brown body plumage with a conspicuously pale head and neck which can almost be White in older birds, the tail feathers of adults are also White.
This is a schedule 1 species which went extinct in the UK during the early 20th century and this one must be a descendant of one of those reintroduced birds. These birds remain Red Listed meaning they are still the highest conservation priority.
