15th of May: Little Tern Fencing

Over the last two days we have been putting up Little Tern fencing on the shingle ridge near the Watch House. One area to the east and another to the west. Little Terns have been settling in these two areas, as they do every year, so we have put up fences to protect them from disturbance. Oystercatchers and Ringed Plovers will benefit from this too, as they also nest on the shingle in these areas.

Yesterday a Cuckoo was spotted flying over the dunes. This was a first for the season.
