We received some great news last week that the white-tailed eagle that was rescued from the north Aberdeenshire coast almost a year ago has returned to Ireland! See previous blog here.
The 2010 bird with the wing tags white/blue “3” was detected through radio tracking back in county Kerry after being released from Fife in December 2011. He had only been seen on one occasion since by staff at Drumpelier country park before vanishing from our radio tracking “radar”. See this blog.
After such a traumatic experience and having spending a month being washed and rehabilitated, we were delighted to see him take to the skies again, and now having made his way all the way back to Ireland! Thanks again to SSPCA for all of their hard work.
