An Irish Red Kite, hatched and fledged from a nest in Wicklow, has for the first time nested, bred and reared its own young near Redcross. As part of the national bird of prey reintroduction programmes in Ireland, Red Kites, Golden Eagles and White-tailed Eagles have all bred in Ireland in recent years. But all these breeding adults have hatched in their respective donor stock countries (Wales, Scotland and Norway) and were subsequently collected and…

As a volunteer looking for some work experience, I really wasn?t sure what to expect when I arrived in Wicklow, or what the next week might hold in store for me in terms of sightings, work and of course the weather.

The autumn and winter has required a lot of fieldwork and also a large amount of data entry, reports and funding claims to compile ? unfortunately it's not all about watching kites and sometimes we have to do some 'real' work! We are extremely grateful to our all project funders and the support from the public and volunteers. Since the winter and the disappointing loss of nine kites in Dublin during November and December to…
