Sea eagle

Apparently English Nature wish to introduce White-tailed eagles into Norfolk - with a decision expected this year. Not all have greeted this proposal with glee. The Countryside Restoration Trust point out that eagles breed only 125 miles away at Oostvaardersplassen (The Netherlands) and, if conditions were suitable in Norfolk self colonisation would occur naturally.
The price of the reintroduction is costed at £600,000 and, the Trust say, this money could be better spent elsewhere. Frankly, on this point, I agree with them.
