Yesterday morning we had over 100 little terns flying around the site before it settled down to the 30 who seem to have established. We have so far found eight nests, one egg each. from now until end July we will need all the volunteers we can find.
Our sister colony at Kilkoole currently looks to have over 200 birds with nesting already underway: http://littleternconservation.blogspot.com/
Our Welsh sister colony at Groniant is reporting over 150 birds: https://northwaleslittleterns.weebly.com
looking around the other tern sites and the recent spell of warm weather it looks like a good year – lets hope those easterlies don’t get too lively!
