EagleCAM display is housed in the centre building (Bld 131) along with other bird interactive displays. Building 131 is only about 350 meters (382 yards) from the Sea-Eagles nest, although it is not visible from the Discovery Centre, the High Definition Video monitors give a very good close up and personal view of all the action on the nest.
