Barry O'Donoghue has been recording colour-tagged Hen Harriers throughout Ireland, some of which were ringed at their nests in Kerry.
The colour of the left wing tag will tell us what year the bird was born. All birds born and tagged in 2009 have a yellow tag on their left wing. In 2006 this colour was Blue, in 2007 it was Red and in 2008 it was Green. The tag on the right wing identifies where the bird has come from, one of four places in 2009. Each individual bird has its own symbol written on both tags. Tagged birds can and have been found outside of the four areas where tagging has taken place. Sightings of non wing-tagged Hen Harriers are also welcome.
If you see one, please contact Barry O‟Donoghue 087-9110715 or firstname.lastname@example.org
