Whiskered Terns

A colony of Whiskered Tern (Chlidonias hybridus)are successfully breeding on the South West of the Reserve again this year. We've counted around 50 nests, 23 of which are clearly visible from the ecotrail.

They are delight to watch and all our recent guests have enjoyed the opportunity to see them at close quarters.
