Sea Eagles Spotted At Scottish Nature Reserve For First Time In Over 100 Years

According to a report by The Guardian, Sea Eagles have returned to Loch Lomond for the first time in over a century! That's a longgg time. Since their arrival to the area in early March, they have since been seen searching for suitable nesting sites, suggesting that they intend to stay in the area. "It is believed that this is the first time sea eagles have settled in Loch Lomond since their UK extinction in the early 20th century due to persecution and habitat changes, with the last known UK sighting before their reintroduction reported in Shetlend in 1918."

NatureScot's operations manager, Paul Roberts, had this to say: "This is the latest chapter in the continuing success story of sea eagle conservation. Along with our partners, we carefully manage the reserve to offer rich and diverse habitats to support a wide range of birds and other wildlife, so it's very rewarding to see the sea eagles return to Loch Lomond after all these years. We're working closely with Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority (LLTNPA) and RSPB Scotland to protect the birds and we are urging visitors to enjoy the reserve responsibly and make sure they don't disturb them."

Way to go NatureScot! We love to hear about wildlife conservation success stories, looks like the sea eagles have made their return and are here to stay!!

Bear with us here as we gather all the details on this terrifying and crazy story. 

In Fresno, California, Taylor Hawkins was on her way to the gorgeous National Park of Sequoia and Kings Canyon, when an unexpected guest decided to hitch a ride right in front of her... 

A bear. A bear causally walked up to the car in front of hers, looked at the trunk and the climbed onto the car. Taylor Hawkins was about to capture the outrageous moment on video. 

Just seconds after the bear climbed onto the car, it seemed to get spooked and immediately jumps down and takes off. However, it didn't go too far. The bear stopped just near the edge of the road and looked back at the car it was previously on top of for a few seconds. 

There's nothing as wild as wild life itself, huh? Thankfully, no one was injured during this attempted hitchhike and now it's just a great story to tell.
