Thanks to our Polish friends for the new signs on the beach. We still have ten birds sitting and at least three or four chicks running around. We managed to ring a few chicks last week.

Elsewhere in the Irish sea its turning into a boom year for little terns and other tern species , with conditions similar to the 2012 – 13 season when we had over 100 pairs successfully fledging young, so about a 10th of what we would have expected..
