Set dryer to the rain

Chicks in the rain (Ciaran Hatsell)

Friday 29th June comments: That was an epic few hours last night, and looking elsewhere in the north-east we may have got off lightly, as the Newcastle region was hammered. Above is a montage of videos taken during the storm of our Arctic Tern chicks and the 'storm salon'. Sadly this morning we have had casualties with small numbers of Kittiwake, Shag and Arctic Tern chicks not making the night. However it could have been a lot, lot worse...
