Roseate Tern

The Roseate Tern numbers are steadily building on the Inner Farne over the last week and they are beautiful to.

Yes they are coming out of their summer plumage but they are still lovely to see. I did see a few at the beginning of the season but they were either to far away over just flying over but lately they have been close up so I have managed to get a picture or two.

I have also been told that they have had a good season on Coquet Island with around 94 pairs and 105 chicks ringed by Tom Cadwallender which is great news.

Fingers crossed one day they will breed on the Inner Farne but until then I will just have to enjoy them while they are here.
