Tern #2
Tern #2

This tern placed her 3 eggs in the seaweed right outside the boathouse so we couldn't used it as much as we usually do. Unfortunately the tide got one day very high and the eggs were over flooded. We were able to save 2 eggs floating in the cold water and placed it higher up on the seaweed hoping for that the tern will accept it and coming back. I placed my camera with a connected PIR hoping for her return. As you can see she returned and several weeks later 2 new young terns hatched.
