They learnt about the common terns which are currently nesting on Samson (for the first time in 5 years!) and how we need to protect them and other nesting seabirds and waders. 

- they will move away from birds showing signs of distress

- they will move away from nests and chicks so they don't get trampled 

- they will watch our wonderful birds from a safe distance whilst having fun on the island

Have a great picnic everyone and let us know what seabirds you see!
