Tomorrow (Thursday 31st August) I will be carrying out a tern roost count at Baltray. High tide is at 8pm, so I aim to be on the beach just after 6pm to locate any terns using the beach and to start counting. If you are interested in helping with the count and learning more about the bird species in the area, meet at the second gate at The Haven at 6pm. After that I will be on the beach. I will be the one looking through the spotting scope! Dress warmly. Everyone welcome.
