The Arctic Tern, known locally as the 'tirrick' for its distinctive call, is the harbinger of summer. The bird's population has dropped by 70% in thirty years, a result of the decline of their main food the sand eel. The birds undertake the longest migration of any animal, with some clocking up 44,000 miles a year from pole to pole.
