  Following on from the messages about the sea eagles at JW. Adult sea eagles 
have been in residence at the refuge area of the Wetlands for at least the last 
month. One is always present and often two (photo taken on a very grey day 
yesterday). With the return of the lake level to normal the back channels in 
the refuge area are once again under water. Having been dry for two years they 
became vegetated. Flooded grasses are apparently very attractive to carp and 
these channels have been full of them. This has obviously caught the eye of the 
eagles. Maybe when the carp have consumed all this vegetation they may disperse 
and therefore less pickings for the eagles and they will move on. Time will 
tell. It would be good if they stayed on but I have not seen any evidence of 
nest building. The best place to try and see them is from Clare Holland House 
or possibly Kingston Harbour.
