The little terns have returned from their winter feeding grounds in West Africa to breed on the Essex coast.
This week we have confirmed our first nest with 3 eggs at the RSPB Old Hall Marshes colony with promises of more as early bird numbers have been encouraging and the birds are nesting around 2 weeks earlier than last year.
We have organised 2 special evening boat trips from West Mersea to view the colony and other wildlife whilst experiencing the ever changing light of an Essex salt-marsh sunset. Ideal for all nature enthusiasts and photographers.
Thursday 13th June 7.30 - 9.30pm
Wednesday 26th June 7.30 - 9.30pm
