The little tern numbers are slowly increasing:

May 22nd – 57

May 23rd – 28

May 24th – 23

May 25th – 60+

May 26th – 80 –¬†One female sat for several hours on a scrape and a male delivered fish on three occasions, but no egg.

May 27th – 40+ – Spring tide

On the 28th we saw significant scraping action with at least three pairs looking sitting.

The Spring tide on the 27/28th of May entangled the outer electric fence and came half way into the enclosure; a big thanks to all who helped disentangle it yesterday. Hopefully now all birds will lay and hatch before the next spring tide end June!
