Coming Home?

The above photograph, taken by Nigel Dalby, is of a tagged Red Kite which was present on Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel from Mid March for at least a week and a half. The tags clearly show that the bird is one of those sent to Co. Wicklow in 2007 as part of our ongoing re-introduction project with the Golden Eagle Trust. This bird was though to be one member of a pair showing interest in breeding last year so it is a major surprise that it has turned up back on this side of the Irish sea - perhaps it got a preview at the press release below!
