Blackboard Gets A Facelift

Upon arrival at the Little Tern colony site, visitors are welcomed by a series of detailed project information signs & a set of blackboards which we update with the latest tern news and keep a list of Bird & Wildlife sightings from the general area.

They're a real hit with members of the public & many locals extend their morning walk along the beach to this spot just so they can catch up with the latest goings on!

One of the blackboards which has been on the go since the early days of the project was in dire need of some TLC. Fellow BirdWatch Ireland staff member, Jerry Wray, was kind enough to give the 'old veteran' a sanding & a lick of paint so the "Colony News" may continue for another season. Furthermore, he also made an entirely new double sided blackboard where we now log our Bird/Wildlife sightings & mounted some updated information posters in weather proof frames (which were funded by a Wicklow County Council grant).

So a big thanks to Jerry is most certainly in order. We really appreciate all the work he has put in to making the path alongside the colony a more informative & enjoyable place for visitors.
