Terns Colonize the New Nesting Islands

All nesting islands are equipped with camera traps, which send a photo record of almost the entire nesting area three times a day. It allows us to observe the terns without disturbing them and to have an overview of the number of nesting pairs, hatchlings, but also victims to the outbreak of bird flu.

Images from the camera traps indicate that the terns really like their new homes. About 20 adults live on each nesting island. All that remains now, is to patiently wait for the chicks to hatch and keep our fingers crossed for the terns so that they don’t contract the infection.
