What young Sandwich terns eat


This 13 July 2015 video is about Sandwich tern mating season on Ameland island in the Netherlands.

Today, 19 July 2015, Dutch Vroege Vogels radio interviewed a researcher into the big Sandwich tern nesting colony in Utopia nature reserve on Texel island.

They found out that Sandwich tern parents there feed their chicks mainly sprat; also some lesser sand eels. The parents themselves eat mostly lesser sand eels.
