Caption: Protecting little tern nesting area. RSPB wardens and local county council workers putting up electric fencing on a beach among sand dunes to protect a nesting area for little terns (Sternula albifrons). This seabird breeds in coastal areas and waterways in temperate and tropical regions of Europe and Asia. It lays two to four eggs directly on the ground. Little terns are a protected species, and electric fence enclosures are being used as part of animal conservation work to protect them from predators such as foxes. Photographed in June 2016, in Denbighshire, Wales.
