The following message from Stephen Debus is interesting.  In a subsequent email Stephen has said ( I have added emphasis): "There may be more than one immature around, but eagles can range 10 km or more from the nest anyway.  Sea-eagles would be building soon, so the carrying of nesting material would be a good clue."

Hi Martin,


Thanks.  It does sound like courtship behaviour, possibly significant for the ACT though it would be nice to confirm a  nest in due course.  If they were duetting and the one beneath initiated the rolling behaviour then it sounds promising.  People should be alert; a nest could be 1-2 km away from water, in forest (maybe towards the north of Jerra were I saw an adult do a long high glide in March) .

G'day Stephen


Following your comment, to Shirley Cook which she forwarded to birding-aus, about recording incidental observations you might be interested in this one.  (I'm not sure if you follow the COG Chatline so if you've already seen it I'm sorry for duplication.)
