Mountshannon Eagle Chick fledges!

Irelands only 2014 White Tailed Sea Eagle Chick fledged this morning at just over 13 weeks old. Sometime after 11am she took her first flight. She was observed for over an hour roosting on a Scots Pine tree at the far end of the island to the nest. She looked very content as she preened herself in the sun.  She was also not flustered when a flock of small birds dived around her. The male White Tailed-Sea Eagle kept a watchful eye on her from a near by tree.There will be a lot of eagle activity at Mountshannon Harbour over the next couple of months, as her parents teach her to fish and fend for herself.
