A rare example of Bonelli’s Eagle was found poisoned last month at Kalkanli lake. It was looked after by the Nature Research and Rescue Organisation, which nurtured it for two weeks, first with medicines and later with live food.

The eagle responded well to treatment and was released yesterday. It flew straight up into the sky without hesitation.

It was first examined by ornithologist Brian Little who has been visiting the TRNC for decades to study its bird life. Upon examination, he stated that based on its wing length and feather development the bird was around three years old.
