October 10: news of SE29 our older eaglet. SE29 fledged a week or so ago, at 77 days from hatch. It was keeping close by and we were thrilled when it returned to the nest for food for the first time on Oct 7. However the next day it was not seen, away overnight and yesterday. Last evening we received a message from one of our team, Rohan, who had found SE29 in a nearby residential area. Close as the eagle flies. 29 was captured and held safely until taken by Hali from WIRES to a vet. SE29 has been injured and appears to have flown into a window or wall. It has been given fluids and pain killers. We are waiting for further information. SE29 is in a safe place and we are hoping for good news.

A little more info about the circumstances yesterday;
I was on site from about 4pm hoping to catch a glimpse of SE29. Heard chirping/honking behind the Discovery Centre at 515-520, which may have been SE30 on the nest.
I then did a lap down past the river, where both parents were, and back around to Hill Rd where my car was...All seemed quiet!
As I drove away, I caught sight of a mob of Currawongs and the unmistakable outline of what could only be an eagle about 5 stories up an apartment block, perched on a metal louvre. As I wheeled the car around to find a parking spot I saw SE29 fly across the street and attempt what turned out to be a very ungainly landing against another building and flop downwards, pursued by the Currawongs.
By the time I parked and ran over ( calling Judy as I ran!) SE29 was a bit dazed but seemingly otherwise fine. They were then perking up a bit so I quickly wrapped them up so as to prevent them attempting to fly off between the buildings and traffic etc if injured beyond my knowledge and waited for Hali from WIRES to arrive. She was amazing and knew exactly what to do to pack SE29 safely into a carrier and take over.

October 10: news of SE30. the younger eaglet SE30 has been more cautious and has just fledged at 82 day from hatching. It returned to the nest again after being swooped by currawongs. Stay safe SE30 and remain cautious. SE30 is self-feeding well.

SE30 falls off back of PB trying to return to the nest and is swooped by magpies and curras, while she was caught in the leafy branches below the nest and has flown off. Not heard 30 anymore, but hearing lots of ravens now in distance. No more calls from SE30.

Oct 13 2022 SE 29 update.
From RangerJudy
"NPWS have been advised by the vets caring for SE29 that he suffered a broken lower left leg when he crash landed. The leg is currently in a cast which is working well and he is standing up most of the time now and regaining his strength and feeding well. Vets are monitoring his condition for the next five days and will then assess what steps need to be undertaken for his continued care and rehabilitation”

21st October, 2022 - info regarding SE30
Here are a few pictures from SE30’s retrieval this morning (thank you Jen S) and one taken by Tim (MoP) sent to us via Sydney Wildlife Rescue (SWR) last night.
Until late yesterday, SE30 has been flying from location to location, remaining 4-6 metres off the ground. Late last night we received notification via Deborah from SWR that SE30 was on the ground in a construction site. It was agreed that in accordance with our Research Protocol, Hale from WIRES would attend the location. As SE30 was still on the ground It was then decided to take *her for vet assessment.
Thanks again to everyone involved!
* gender unknown at this stage.

17th November, 2022 - Tiny update

SE30 - is doing well, eating well and getting stronger. Gender to be confirmed.
SE29 - Nothing new to report. As we said previously, recovery and healing is a slow process and updates on his progress will be infrequent. Your understanding in this matter is appreciated.
