Just when you thought going to the beach was starting to get boring something interesting happens!
Libya holds more than 99 per cent of the Mediterranean breeding population of the Lesser Crested Tern, one of the Mediterranean’s rarest seabirds. Soon an international team of scientists will be studying the birds. Maltese experts will be passing on their skills to Libyan scientists by working with them to count and ring the tern population. The last surveys took place in the 1930's. More here.
Now you've got something new to do at the beach. Bird watching or ornithologist spotting!
