A brief lull in the rain

By DaveNewbury
Common terns arrive in the UK from their wintering grounds in April, and leave our shores again in August or September. The terns lay, on average, three eggs in May with incubation lasting around 22 days. The chicks have normally fledged by 28 days after hatching.

The common tern is a medium-sized tern found in the majority of the UK. These graceful birds are characterised by their silver-grey upperparts, white underparts, black cap and red bill. Photo taken at WWT Washington
