Our Tiroran Community Forest eagle pair, Fingal and Iona, have hatched two chicks this season.
Iona laid her eggs on 1st April and, with a 38-day incubation period, we expected them to hatch around the 8th May. When I arrived in the forest on 9th May to set the scopes up on the nest for the day’s tours, I witnessed, for the first time, Iona feeding something in the nest!
The eggs are laid 2-5 days…
