The Little Tern Recovery Project30/03/2017
The little tern is the smallest and one of the rarest breeding seabirds in the UK. They over winter in Africa and on their return they nest in the open on sandy and shingle beaches which leaves them vulnerable to human disturbance, predators and high tides. The Little Tern Recovery Project is a five year programme, in partnership with 10 other organisations, to protect these brilliant little birds. As the project moves into its fourth breeding season Jane Markham meets Fabienne Fossez who runs the team of volunteers on the east Norfolk coast. And talks to Sue Rendell Read, the project manager, and her assistant Anne Parr about its progress.
