If you are a resident of Broulee you might notice that there is a lonely white bellies sea eagle flying around. It’s long term mate has come into WIRES care after been found on off leash dog beach in Broulee on Sunday unable to take flight.
It attempted to fly but only managed a few flaps before gravity took hold and it came back to earth (or the sea in this case) where the tide washed it back to shore.
The bird was found to have small puncture wounds to its breast, a mildly protruding keel which indicates body condition and broken flight feathers.
The bird was transported north to receive specialised care in raptor facilities.
So stay tuned and hopefully it won’t be too long until Broulee residents see the pair back together.
