Ter­rific year for terns

First News - - Home News -

One of the UK’s small­est and rarest seabirds has beat the odds to pro­duce a record num­ber of 617 chicks this year. Lit­tle terns weigh no more than 55g and their num­bers have dropped dra­mat­i­cally in the UK. They fly more than 3,000 miles from West Africa to the UK ev­ery year to raise their chicks on our shin­gle beaches.
