One good tern deserves another
I'm not quite sure quite how many, but there are hundreds of them on The Skerries at this time of the year. They are amazing birds with a delicate buoyant flight that changes dramatically as they plunge like darts into the sea in search of sand eels.
RSPB wardens keep an eye on the Skerries terns throughout the breeding season from May until mid-August and are usually happy to show a small number of paddlers around. If you do go, take care to keep away from any nesting areas and approach the lighthouse via the steps on the south side.
