Both species of nesting tern have now returned to the Reserve over the past few weeks.

The Little Terns have arrived at the Ferrybridge end of the Fleet on the shingle within their usual colony site. The wardening team are now on site and the management of this unique colony has begun.

At the other end of the Reserve in the Swannery embayment, our static Common Tern island has undergone some repair work after the rough weather we had over the winter, particularly the ice! The Common Terns have also arrived and are beginning to make their nests.
