Thursday 22 July 1915, Kingsnorth


I have been to London on two days’ leave and during that time I visited the Natural History Museum to have a look at the nestling terns. I found that these fell naturally under two headings, (a) the dusky-throated with long-tailed adults (the common, arctic and roseate are good examples) and (b) the white-throated with shorter-tailed adults (such as the lesser, Sandwich and etc.).


Two pages of notes on the nestling down of the terns follow here.
