Little Tern Breeding Colony on Artificial Site at Port Botany, New South Wales

In 1979 I became aware of a colony of Little Tern Sterna albifrons breeding on the partly developed artificial site at Port Botany, New South Wales. The colony was studied in 1980-81, 1981-82 and 1982-83 to determine breeding success, to collect data relating to the artificial site, and to identify factors that threatened the colony. Runners were banded to determine breeding success, and to identify Little Terns originating from the colony which may be retrapped or collected in the future at any location.
