...and terns

Once we'd finished the gulls we headed for the three tern platforms. We had timed it just about right with only two chicks big enough to fly away and most a good size for ringing. We finished on a total of 40 Common Tern chicks ringed (10 on Church Pond, 17 on Main Pond and 13 on Beeston Pond). As was the case in the gull colony, many other pairs were still incubating.
