SAND­WICH TERN

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Mouth -

Gen­er­ally, Sand­wich Terns are the first of our terns to ap­pear in the spring (from late March). Th­ese are big, pale, front-heavy terns with black bills (yel­low tipped on close in­spec­tion). One of the give­aways that Sand­wich Terns are around is their loud rasp­ing ‘kir­rrick’ calls. Like most of the Sterna terns, th­ese are pre­dom­i­nantly coastal birds, but they will pass over the coun­try and can turn up at in­land sites in the spring.
