This year its 10 years ago that the first White-tealed sea eagles bred again in historic time in the Netherlands. A pair bred succesfull in the Oostvaardersplassen. This pair have since bred every year succesfully and in the 10 years the population has increased from 1 pair to 5 pairs in 2015 : - the pair at Oostvaarderplassen - IJselmonding - a new location, the female of this pair hatched herself at Oostvaardersplassen. - Biesbosch - here 2 pairs are breeding and in one of the nests 3 chicks are raised at the moment which is very rare in this species ! - Zwarte Meer - here also the female hatched at Oostvaardersplassen. A sixth pair made a breeding attemp at Lauwersmeer but left the nest after a large branch felt into the nest. In the last 10 years ( this year not included ) 28 young fledged succesfully. Also in other European countries the species is doing well, in Germany for example in 2010 700 pairs and in Denmark in 2011 38 pairs.
