Little terns back on Vlieland island


This video from Britain is called Taking a look at Terns 2: Roseate, Sandwich and Little Tern.

Warden Carl Zuhorn reports that little terns are back nesting on Vlieland island in the Netherlands.

Last year, 68 little tern couples nested on Vlieland. For the first time since many years, some chicks fledged.

Little terns are vulnerable nesting birds. They nest on beaches. That makes the nests vulnerable to high tides, or to people walking on beaches with dogs.
