26 Jun 2019

On Sunday 16 June the first egg of the season was layed by Sydney Olympic Park's resident White-bellied Sea Eagles in their nest at the Newington Nature Reserve.

The egg has been classified SE23, while a second egg, classified as SE24 was laid three days later by the adult female Sea Eagle, known as Lady.

You can keep track of the Sea Eagles and their eggs via EagleCam, which is an initiative of BirdLife Australia and Sydney Olympic Park Authority. The 24-hour live-stream of the nest attracts a worldwide audience, and provides a wealth of data on the behaviour of these magnificent birds to assist in their convervation.

The eggs are expected to hatch 39-41 days after laying.
