Common Terns have started using this island at Titchfield Haven to rest on when the tide is in and there is no beach for them. A few weeks ago the islands were fully occupied by the colony of breading Black-headed gulls.

Below is a young  Common tern and  Black-headed Gull, It was interesting to watch this Juvenile pair happy together and learning the art of catching something in the water together.
