The Eagles Return

2 x 45'

Wildlife series following the trials of three teams bringing wild birds of prey back to Ireland after an absence of over 100 years.

It is the most important Irish wildlife story in decades - the return of some of the largest birds of prey ever to darken Irish skies, the White Tailed Eagle, the Golden Eagle and the Red Kite.

From scaling cliffs in the wilds of Norway, Scotland and Wales on the hunt for new chicks, to hiring planes to fly them home, to nursing them through the first crucial months of freedom in Ireland, this series has powerful wildlife, strong human characters allied to genuine adventure and drama as the story of the birds' survival in Ireland unfolds.
