Tern Counts

Brian Burke from Birdwatch Ireland is currently coordinating a survey of post-breeding Tern flocks around the coast of ROI and is hoping to also gather counts and locations of Tern flocks in Northern Ireland, England and Wales (I.e. around the Irish Sea) to get a better idea of the kinds of numbers of Terns around at this time of year and to get an idea of their movements and timing etc too.

Brian is seeking help from anyone who can provide details or counts of terns from around our coasts. If you visit sites such as the Bann Estuary, Whitehead (Co Antrim), Belfast Harbour area (RSPB reserve/Kinnegar shore/Whitehouse Lagoon), Groomsport/Ballymacormick Point, Strangford Narrows/The Quoile, plus perhaps other spots like Killard and Killough on the Co Down coast or any other sites were terns gather and can provide details for Brian please email him at bburke@birdwatchireland.ie
