Snap­per was too close to bird nest

The Oban Times - - News -

AN EA­GLE’S nest dis­turbed by a pho­tog­ra­pher at 3.30pm on Tues­day, Au­gust 5 is the sub­ject of a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion. The nest, which is lo­cated at Kil­le­cron­nan at Aros, is home to a fam­ily of white-tailed sea ea­gles which are pro­tected un­der law.

Wit­nesses said the pho­tog­ra­pher was very close to the birds and caused one of the ea­gles to fly away from its nest.

Po­lice have launched an en­quiry to find the man and are fol­low­ing a pos­i­tive line of en­quiry.

They re­it­er­ated that any­one who is seen dis­turb­ing sea ea­gles or walk­ing close to nest sites should be re­ported to of­fi­cers on 101.
