THREE of the Isle of Wight's white-tailed eagles are still residing this side of the Solent.

The birds, released at a secret Island location earlier this year, remain settled here.

A fourth, G3-93, has been in Oxfordshire for several weeks, where he has been closely associating with the local red kites.

It is thought likely he is following the kites in the search for food.

As previously reported, of the six eagles introduced here, one eagle has died and another, Culver, has been missing long-term.

Two of the Island-based eagles, male G2-74 and female G3-24, have spent much of the past three months together.

They feature in the photo on this article, as captured by wildlife photographer Nick Edwards.

A more detailed report into the eagles is anticipated from the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation soon.
