After 3 years apparently well-settled on territory and paired with a female in west Connemara, something is going on with 2009 male Star. Over the winter he made a couple of excursions away from Connemara to south-east Galway but returned to his territory. Not so just now though. After returning to his territory on 6th Jan he headed east on 13th Jan roosting on the shore of Lough Corrib, the to Loughrea in SE Galway…

Looks like 2009 released WTSE male Star will be spending Christmas on leave from his territory in south Connemara! Star took off and headed south-east across Galway Bay on 10th Dec, roosting the night just east of Gort on the northern edge of the Slieve Aughty hills. On 13th Dec he crossed into Co. Clare to roost near Lough Graney. Over the next nine day days (to 22 Dec) Star moved to the Loughrea area.…

Over the last four and a half months or so since she took her first flight from her nest high up in a Scots Pine near Mountshannon, Co.

Over the last few weeks Aoibheall (2014 Mountshannon chick) has been very settled in and around its nest area and showing little sign of making a big movement away. She did make it a few km east along the shore towards Whitegate but soon returned to her usual haunts. Last weekend she visited Inis Cealtra (Holy Island) for the first time and roosted there overnight which is remarkable given how close it is to where…

Seems like most or all our adult WTSEs carrying satellite tags have pretty much settled down on territory (not counting the 2014 WTSE chick Aoibheall who has plenty of free time to explore her world for the next 3-4 years of course!). 2009 released male Star found his ‘Des Res’ in a beautiful corner of the Connemara coast in spring 2012, found a mate and nested for the first time this year. Although the pair…
