Sat5th Apr 2003
On the 1st April Yellow One Spot and Yellow Diagonal Bar were observed foraging and soaring over young forestry to the south of the Derryveagh Mountains. On one occasion, as both birds were soaring together, one eagle made an almost vertical stoop at a particular point among the young trees and the second eagle seemed to react a few seconds later and came gliding in at a much lower angle and both converged on the…

On the 1st March Blue 9 was seen outside the Park for the first time, soaring comfortably along a ridge of the Glendowan Mountains.

Admittedly it is a very small sample size - less than 9 eagle years in total (5 x 1 year and 8 x 6…

During December there were 3-6 records for each second year bird in the Derryveagh range, including Glenveagh National Park. There were also several days when these birds could not be located in the Derryveagh range. It seems as if the five second year eagles are following the same pattern; foraging in other nearby mountain ranges and returning to the Derryveagh Mountains and the release site regularly, possibly to see if there is a single territory…
