The little tern is the smallest European tern and also a very brave bird. It chooses to make its nest in places where other birds wouldn't dare. That limits any competition. Little terns often lay their eggs in nothing more than a hollow in the sand. By nesting in such risky places, the colonies often lose eggs during high tide and the chicks turn numb due to a lack of shelter. By nesting in small colonies, they spread the risk.
