Kilcoole Little Tern Conservation Project: a video documentary

Andrew Power and Peter Cutler produced this fabulous documentary offering insight into the Little Tern breeding colony at Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow, and the ongoing efforts to protect them.

Little terns are Ireland’s smallest tern species, and one of our rarest breeding seabirds. The colony in Kilkoole is Ireland’s largest. For more information check out the excellent Kilcoole Little Tern Colony blog from Birdwatch Ireland, and of course watch the video below.
