Ingar has been pretty much settled back on Upper Lough Erne, Fermanagh, in the last couple of weeks and looks likely that he will spend the winter there. Lots of great wooded islands and shoreline to choose from. Its amazing how individual birds change in their habitat use as they get older and presumably think about settling down, establishing a territory and breeding. Ingar spent much of his first two years of life inland in…

The autumn weather is still pretty mild and windy but the days are getting shorter as we lead into the winter. Aoibheall is showing all the signs she might spend the winter on Lough Derg

Ingar has been exploring Upper and Lower Lough Erne over the last 10 days or so. From moving up and down the full extent of Upper L Erne in the early part of Oct Ingar headed north-west to Lower L Erne on 17/10, roosting on Boa Island at the north end of the lough on 18/10, before heading back south past Enniskillen the next day. He has some beautiful country to himself...or has he?

Aoibheall has been active over the last week making short trips, mostly south and south-east, to the Ogonelloe and Tipperary shores. One of her more adventurous flights took in a 9km trip south to the slopes of Tountinna in the Arra Mountains, the highest peak on the east shore, perhaps using some of the autumn winds we’ve been experienced recently. But she is still using the Mountshannon area as base camp

The 5th year of collecting and releasing White-tailed Sea Eagles, to re-establish the species as a breeding bird in Ireland after a gap of over 110 years, went well this summer and all birds are now out there soaring freely in the skies on the south-west and possibly beyond. Collecting the sea eagle chicks began on the islands of Hitra, Froya, and Vikna on 17-19 June thanks to the superb efforts of the collecting team…
The 100th bird in the bag!
