One of the UK's rarest seabirds the little tern could be under threat from climate change as rising seas destroy Wales' coastline.

The birds return each April from Africa to breed on a stretch of shingle in north Wales but rising sea levels caused by climate change could destroy the area.

The site in the Gronant Dunes Special Protection Area is the last remaining breeding ground in Wales and is one of only sixty across the UK.

Natural Resources Wales, The RSPB and Denbighshire County Council are working together to help little terns adapt in order to secure their future in Wales.

Notebooks belonging to Swansea-born poet Dylan Thomas will go on show in Wales - more than 70 years after he sold them to a US university.

The move comes after a museum dedicated to the poet received a grant of almost £1 million.

The money - £935,700 in total - from the Heritage Lottery Fund will go towards the redevelopment of the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea.

It means memorabilia, including a love letter to his wife Caitlin, will be able to be brought out of the archives and put on show alongside the notebooks, which Thomas sold to the University of Buffalo, New York, in 1941.

Thomas, whose work includes Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night and the play Under Milk Wood, died in 1953 aged 39.
