13 Apr 2015        AGM & Ewan Weston – Terns on the Ythan

Ewan is a well known ornithologist locally in the North-east and has previously spoken to the group on his work on golden eagles as well as little auks in Greenland. Last year he completed his PhD on juvenile golden eagles at the University of Aberdeen. The terns on the Ythan and the colony of sandwich terns have been monitored for 50 years and in his own time Ewan’s major project is looking at the movements and survival of terns on the Ythan Estuary. Since 2010 Ewan has been colour-ringing sandwich terns and birds ringed on the Ythan have been seen across Europe and Africa. There are also interesting movements and patterns from common and Arctic terns.
