Heading for home….


Heading South… Heading to their winter Home

Bird migration time.  Most have already fled our isles heading south to warmer climates, avoiding our winter weather that will arrive in the months ahead.

Usually at this time of the year we are on one of our northerly coasts. The last of the Terns will be joining this procession south,  a great sight to see .  Delicate birds, yet they have a long distance flight ahead of them, to the south of Africa and even beyond into the Antarctic…. What energy, but also what navigational skills they have…. then after a short rest its a return flight to our breeding colonies for another productive summer. 

No matter where you are heading…..

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
