Little terns at North Bay

Little terns at North Bay

Tour operator Anthony Riddle reported 3 Little Terns at North Bay on 14 October 2013. They stayed on the island until March 2014. They were often seen feeding on the surface in the North Passage, or sitting on North Beach. When they first arrived they were very skittish and it was hard to get within 50 metres of them; but they became used to the safe environment here by watching the Sooty terns on North Beach, and settled so that observers could walk within 10 metres of them.
