Little terns -when do they come back?

I'd love to come and see the little terns, so could you please let me know the rough timingfor when they return to hodbarrow so I can plan a trip across?

  • We usually see the first little terns of the year towards the end of April.  Unfortunately, they haven't stayed to nest for a couple of years and are only seen sporadically during the summer months.  Fingers crossed they will stay to breed this year.

    Little Terns seen daily at the moment with up to six or seven at times. Best to come on a rising or high tide just now for best chance to see them. Also around are common and sandwich.
