Human disturbance causes failure of two White-tailed Eagle nests

Dreadful news, that two White-tailed Eagle nests, one near Killarney and one at Mountshannon (which has produced chicks in each of the last three years), have failed due to human disturbance.

Despite the vigilance of interested locals, it is believed kayakers and possibly a drone may have been responsible for the disturbance and abandonment of the nests. The story can be read on the Irish Times website HERE.
