Terned Away!


A report has detailed how climate change is altering life in the warming seas around UK shores (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/jul/28/climate-change-drawing-squid-anchovies-and-tuna-into-uk-waters). It may be very nice that squid, anchovies and tuna are coming to our shores but other marine life, such as Sand eels, are having to move North. This is very bad news for some of our important breeding colonies of bird, such as Puffins and Arctic terns, who rely on these food items. Food and nest sites can't be too separated.
