A good day at Cemlyn yesterday

I spent a few hours over at Cemlyn yesterday morning, and these are the photos I took whilst I was there. Sandwich Terns are doing well so far this year considering the colony deserted early last summer. 

Arctic Tern

Numbers were low initially at 300 pairs, but they have risen recently to over 1200 birds, which is fantastic news. Good views of Common & Arctic Terns (small numbers of each nesting) and a single Roseate Tern has been showing up sometimes. Passage waders are often around and a Black Guillemot is usually in the bay.

                            Check out the latest updates on the Cemlyn Wardens Facebook page.
Walks with a Warden: This year's wardens are Tim and Tarik. At least one of them is usually to be found                                 on the shingle ridge and will fill you in about the latest sightings. 


Hummingbird Hawk-moth

On Sundays at 2pm one of them will be leading a guided walk, starting from the West car park. This is every Sunday up to 22nd July. No booking needed, just turn up. Donation to NWWT would be welcome.
