Ireland’s Skydancer

27 Jan 2017
The Hen Harrier is one of Ireland’s most spectacular birds. Unfortunately, it is also one of our most endangered, 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. Darío Fernández-Bellon produced a video for BirdWatch Ireland which gives you a chance to watch these beautiful birds and their amazing courtship displays, to learn about why they are such an important part of our uplands and to understand the challenges they face in an ever-changing landscape.
