This live-streaming webcam was set up by the National Parks and Wildlife Service to monitor a pair of white-tailed sea eagles breeding in County Cork. White-tailed sea eagles became extinct in Ireland over 100 years ago but were brought back as part of a reintroduction programme: from 2007 to 2011 one hundred eagle chicks were brought from Norway and released in Killarney National Park. They have since dispersed around Ireland and there are now around a dozen pairs breeding in counties Cork, Kerry, Clare, Tipperary and Galway.
The birds on this live webcam are Black P (female) and Blue W (male), both of whom were brought to Ireland as part of the reintroduction programme. In 2016, a pair of eagles at this nest raised the first eagle chick to fledge in Co Cork in over a century. However, in 2018 the original female (Green D) was ousted by a younger female P. This new pairing has yet to fledge a chick so we will watch with bated breath to see if they can succeed in 2020.
