Terns starting to settle…

The terns at Rye Harbour are starting to settle down properly for the season.  The Sandwich Terns have been for a while and many of them have eggs in their “nests” (which are barely more than scrapes in the shingle except for a few birds which have managed to steal nests from Black Headed Gulls).  The Common Terns are far behind this though with birds still pairing up and fighting over territories on the nesting islands.  The Little Terns are further behind still, behind hindered by the recent high winds, but will hopefully get down to business fairly soon!  Anyway, take a look at this minifilm of the tern activity going on right now:
