Little tern coming in to land on a shingle beach

School children give little terns a fighting chance on the Norfolk Coast 

School children help make clay decoys that replicate little terns. It's hoped they'll attract the UK's smallest seabird to nest in more suitable areas of Blakeney Point and improve breeding success.
