Eagle nest activity checks: recommendation to hold off until November.​ It is now the breeding season for both wedge-tailed eagles and sea eagles. It's important to stay well away - hundreds of metres away, out of sight and hearing of an eagle on a nest - to avoid risks of impact on breeding success. For those needing to check whether a nest is occupied, the Forest Practices Authority now recommends only November checks. Earlier checks may result in mistakes.
