Little terns Norfolk

Does anyone know if these are still there at the end of July?

Yes, there should still be some around, though not as many as earlier in the summer (it is usually the first tern to start heading south after breeding).

Thanks for that, where is the best place to see them do you know? (I am going to try to go in June instead).

The Winterton-on-Sea colony is usually great - but they are not here at the moment...

I hope they are by the 1st Saturday in June - I had to spent a lot of effort persuading the wife to go there. Is it worth going there even if there are no terns?

Yep, unless the colony has been deserted, which is unlikely. They should be on eggs by then.
