In the news

A few wildlife stories that attracted my eye today.

One of 15 white-tailed Eagle chicks released in Fife last summer has been seen on Mull. Conservationist have always hoped that East and West Coast birds would mix. The bird was seen flying into roost with two wild west coast youngsters.

On a totally different scale reef building worms hace returned to a breach in North Wales after a break of 60 years. In just two years the worms have created a 350m long reef on the beach in Llanddulas, between Old Colwyn and Abergele, Conwy.

The worms build the reef by creating tightly packed tubes from sand and shell on moderately exposed shores.
