Episode 5

Colin travels to the Gaeltacht areas of Mayo and Donegal with Derek McLoughlin, who’s been studying a near-extinct Irish bird - the Twite  - for the past two years. Together, they attempt to track down the Twite’s near-inaccesible nest, to see how productive this year’s breeding season has been.

At Killarney National Park, Colin joins project manager Alan May, and follows the progress of 15 white tailed eagle chicks – a gift to Ireland from the Norwegian government as May attempts to coax this once-indigenous species back to it’s former home on the cliffs of the west coast.
