The East Scotland Sea Eagle team has trippled in size over the past month with new recruits Miriam Kayoueche-Reeve and Heather Richards joining me at the RSPB Tayside and Fife office!
Miriam is the new Sea Eagle infomation officer, and her post has been funded by Rural Tayside and Fife LEADER. Her role is to promote the east coast sea eagle to the tourism industry and to attend lots of events over the busy summer period to raise awareness of sea eagles in east Scotland. Look out for Miriam at up and coming events such as The Railway Farm market http://www.highlandlightrailway.co.uk/events.php.
Heather is the new sea eagle project assistant and will be a great help to me over this busy time as I prepeare for this year's chicks to arrive. Her post is funded by both HLF and LEADER. So far she has been helping prepare release aviaries for the chicks and following the movements of the older sea eagles and was very excited to see one of our awesome birds down at Tentsmuir point!
A big welocme to them both, and I hope they enjoy their new roles in this exciting project :-)
