Eagles as seen from the Cnoc Eoghain ridge
by ciarraioch  28 Apr 2013
On the ridge between Knockowen and the Healy Pass, on the 27th April 2013, we saw three eagles circling and catching the updraft. The photo shows two of the three with Kenmare Bay (Sneem) and the mountains of Iveragh in the background. This was our third sighting in the last two years, the previous being on Bruach na Binne and on the way down from Coomura at the back of Lough Cloon.
