little tern update

16 July 2016
Three little terns were flying over the 'protected' area, though they weren't alighting or making any evident nesting attempts. There had been five around earlier in the season which had looked as if they were prospecting but that coincided with a spell of hot weather that brought out the wind-surfers, whose vanes were swooping all over the area and must have looked like giant raptors, so there was no chance the terns would settle then. Ironically, a ringed plover does seem to be nesting in the enclosure, which is one bonus anyway.
