Little Terns at Portrane need your help
The Little Tern is a rare summer visitor to Ireland from April to late August. Their nests are located on shingle beaches, this makes the eggs and the young very vulnerable to disturbance, predation and nest destruction. The whole European population is amber-listed due to their scarcity. For the first time in many years, Portrane Beach, North County Dublin, has 10 pairs of Little Terns with 7 viable nests.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Tom Kavanagh (086 2314736) is coordinating volunteers to patrol the beach and talk to visitors. If you can spare a few hours to help please give Tom a call.
