A Little Good News

Following on from the devastating news from the Little Tern colony at Crimdon, Co Durham earlier in the week it was great to see some positive news coming from the Little Tern colony at Kilcoole, Co Wicklow in Ireland today.

In what is expected to be a busy week for the wardens. the first chick hatched with a second in the same nest appearing not too far behind. It's sad to think that at least 50 of these would have been appearing around this time at Crimdon.
