Little Tern Conservation

The Little Tern (Sternula albifrons) colony at Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow is wardened every year from May to August by BirdWatch Ireland staff working in conjunction with the National Parks & Wildlife Service.

The colony is viewable to the public throughout the season & group outings are catered for on request (contact the wardens at to organise such a group visit).

Feel free to visit the project at any stage throughout the season where on-site wardens will be more than happy to show you the breeding birds & answer any questions you may have. 

More information can be found on the project blog where you can also keep up to speed with all the latest news on the Little Terns as well as general wildlife sightings in the area.
