Irish Kite Dead at Sea
Heard from Damian Clarke today that one of last year's kite chicks that was sent to Wicklow from Wales has been retrieved by a lifeboat, about 2km off the Wicklow coast! (I don't think the lifeboat was called out specially!) The bird had been recorded alive and well in the release area up until quite recently. Interesting to speculate on what might have happened but I guess we can rule out drowning whilst attempting to swim back to Wales!
