An-arctic-tern-006

According to this article the UK’s oldest arctic tern has been founds on the Farne Islands. The tern was originally caught and ringed on the islands in 1980 but has recently been spotted again 30 years later. It is thought the tern would have travelled around 1m miles so far in its lifetime and perhaps she will be go on to cover many more yet.
