Wed5th May 2010
It is early Wednesday morning, 5th May 2010, and I was up till the wee small hours collating as many relevant points as possible for an Irish journalist, preparing to write a piece on the background of illegal poisoning in Ireland. I tried to focus on the legal, farming and economic arguments surrounding the impact of illegal poisoning. Since the 19th of February 2010 I have been in a bit of a tailspin, deflated and…

It obviously has a pretty good mapping system, as it is clearly finding its way around Leitrim and returning to favoured roosting spots. It has now gone between over 70km away from…

This will be an occasional ad-hoc update, as often as additional information comes to the fore that is not obvious from the Tracking data relayed on the website. I can already see the emails asking for more details and more frequent updates! But the Golden Eagle Trust does not have the resources to satisfy the wishes of some keen supporters of the project for constant updates. Our emphasis and focus will firmly remain on conservation…
