Getting ready for new arrivals

Getting ready for new arrivals

This is Kevin preparing 'Tern Island' for the arrival of our Common Terns who are due to return to Royal Quays Marina to breed in late April/early May having wintered in Africa and flown thousands of miles to spend the summer in the North East.
The upkeep of 'Tern Island' involves raking over the crushed shell surfacing, removing any debris, mending broken timbers and installing new chick shelters to provide an escape from wet weather or marauding gulls. 'Tern Island' is used as a platform by larger birds such as cormorants during the winter but these are soon seen off when the Common Terns arrive in the Spring.
