GE Orange 4

Eagle chick before fledging Eagle chick before fledging (c) Laurie Campbell

Two Golden Eagle chicks were fitted with Satellite tags prior to release in 2005. The second satellite tagged bird, Orange 4, has had several distinct foraging areas during its first year. It spent some time in the SW of Donegal between Glengesh, Slieve Toohey, Slieve League and Mulnanaff before skipping eastward onto the Blue Stacks. It spent several weeks wandering all around the Sperrins, between Omagh and Dungiven, and other small adjoining hills in Northern Ireland. This bird is now back in south Donegal and we eagerly await to see its autumnal movements.
