We have had a six little terns flying around the site over the past few weeks. On Friday 16th one bird sat for several hours but no nest. Over the last few days these birds have become more active, chasing terns, displaying and generally looking like they might nest. However due to the small numbers they are very vulnerable to crows so any help wardening is much appreciated.
In other news a cuckoo has been on the site for the last week or so, at least six ringed plover chicks and many skylarks and meadow pipits with young just now.
