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.

Thank you very much Calvin for sharing, we’ll have some more videos to share in the future!
Are members of the public allowed to visit the colony at this time of year?
Calvin Jones says
Yes, I believe so Dee — there’s a warden station there with information and so on — there should be something on the Little Tern Conservation blog about visiting.
