Ospreys return to breed in Ireland after 250-year absence, signaling conservation success

In a remarkable conservation milestone, Ireland is celebrating the return of the majestic osprey to its skies after an absence of nearly 250 years. Previously hunted to extinction, the osprey has made a triumphant comeback, with a nesting pair discovered by seasoned birdwatcher Giles Knight.

The discovery of three chicks and two adults marks a significant conservation success, underscoring a thriving wetland ecosystem. Ireland’s recent raptor conservation efforts have contributed to this momentous event, and it is crucial that these ospreys are protected to ensure their continued growth. This resurgence is a testament to the resilience of nature and offers hope for a bright future in Irish skies.
