This year’s breeding attempt had failed by late April. There was concern when the male bird, Yellow Two Spots, was not seen near the nest site in late April and early May. But a second Yellow tagged eagle was seen near the incubating female on the 9th May. The female was last seen sitting on the egg on the 10th May - the due hatching date was the 5th May. Two eagles were seen soaring…

Red K was seen near Glenveagh and Red F had returned to the north of the Donegal during the month. Blue 5 was again in its favoured haunts in early April.

A third year bird (fourth calendar year), Blue 5, was radio tracked roosting with the first year eagles, near the release cages on the 7th January for one night only. On the 10th January Red K was radio tracked in Glenveagh and on the 19th January Red X was seen and radio tracked high soaring with a first year bird very close to the release cages. Red X had not been recorded since September 2004…
