June and July 2005

Green N was radio tracked near Grogán Mor on the 3rd June. Green O and Green T were radio tracked in the Bluestacks during June and July also.

5 young birds were collected in Scotland in mid June (two birds came from the Uists, two from Badenoch near Strathspey and one from Perthshire) and brought to Glenveagh on the 21st June. A further two young eagles were collected from Angus and brought to Glenveagh on 2nd July. We are currently aware of only 10 broods of two that were located in Scotland this breeding season. We imported 5 males and 2 females this year. (By August 2005 we had released 19 males and 23 females – and 3 females have been recovered dead since the project started.)

I did no driving and radio tracking from late June to early August due to a broken arm. On the 17th July, two red-tagged birds, just into their 3rd year, were seen at a distance foraging and flying together as a pair in another potential territory.
