2nd of March: From Norfolk to Namibia

News has reached us that a Sandwich Tern ringed as a chick on Blakeney Point in summer 2014 was seen in Namibia, southern Africa this February (the 17th, to be precise). That's an impressive 8,575 km south.

We look forward to the return of these elegant seabirds. Over the coming few weeks, we should start to see the first returning birds on the north Norfolk coast.
