Little Tern juvenile
The Little Tern colony at Winterton Dunes Norfolk last week took a disastrous loss due to the bad weather in very windy conditions, where the sand was blown across the nesting site and destroyed at least 400 young chicks, 50 are known to have survived, a working member of the RSPB told me this today 17/7/2014, this was sad news for me as when I arrived I was expecting to see many Young Terns which have fledged the nest and on a good note the sun was shining and a glorious summer day on the Beach.

Cracking image of a beautifully marked little bird Trevor.
Let's hope they recover from this disaster.

Beautifully detailed capture.......love the light that you've caught on the little tern there. Very sad to read about so many of them being lost though, here's hoping that the colony will recover....and go from stength to strength.
