Attenborough terns, Thursday 17 July

I was joined by Duncan and Pete S for the second visit to two of the tern platforms at ANR. It had been four weeks since our first visit so I think we may have missed a few chicks that were hatching last time. A few chicks took flight as we approached so we missed them. We ringed 19 more chicks, 12 on Conneries and 7 on the Main Pond platform bringing the total this year to 67 chicks ringed and only one dead chick was found. Chicks were still hatching while we were there, but not enough to warrant a third visit.
