Caption: Little tern conservation fieldwork. Researcher recording details of a little tern (Sternula albifrons) nest on a beach as part of a coastal protection scheme. The two eggs are at lower left. A marker post has been placed in the sand nearby. 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 in this area as part of animal conservation work to protect them from predators such as foxes. Photographed in June 2016, in Denbighshire, Wales.
