VIDEO: The spectacular aerial displays of one of Ireland’s rarest birds
January 25th 2017
BirdWatch Ireland have produced this incredible video which shows the spectacular ‘skydance’ of the Hen Harrier.
As BirdWatch explain: “The Hen Harrier is one of Ireland’s most spectacular birds. It is also one of the rarest, which, combined with its preference for remote upland areas, means that few of us have ever had the privilege of witnessing the “skydancer” for ourselves.
“Here is your chance to watch these beautiful birds and their amazing courtship displays, to learn about why there are such an important part of our uplands and to understand the challenges they face in an ever-changing landscape.”
