3's the magic number

I found a new nest today bringing the Cederberg total up to 20! I'm not sure yet if it's active but there was a pair of Black eagles circling around the area so hopefully there's something going on. More interestingly it fits perfectly on my maps... in areas where availability of a suitable cliff is not a limiting factor it seems that Black eagles in the Cederberg will nest approximately 3km apart... as I explore more I hope that this trend will continue.
Over the next while I will be looking at the overall status of Black eagles in the Western Cape. So if you know of any nests that we can 'put on the map' please get in contact.

Dankie!
