There is some good news here on the reserve; after years of persistence from our dedicated rangers and volunteers our tern raft camera is finally up and running! The camera has been streaming without interruption for 3 days now and will be streamed to our live webcam for the majority of the day.
The Common Terns have been returning periodically to the raft to perform their courtship displays, scrape their nests and in some instances even mate. There are, however, a pair of crows still lingering around the raft, which is resulting in the terns being forced off the raft before returning again. But as the terns return in higher numbers they will begin ‘dive-bombing’ the crows and should easily displace them from the raft.
