Little Tern Season

The maximum number of Little Terns recorded in 2018 was 144 on 2 June, broadly equivalent to 72 pairs. The minimum number of nest-scrapes active at any one time was 9 at Crimdon and 1 at South Gare. However, no eggs were successfully hatched, largely because of persistent problems with crow predation at Crimdon. This was the first year of total breeding failure at Teesmouth since 2012.
