Seabird breeding has been "terrible" in some northerly areas such as Orkney and Shetland, RSPB Scotland has warned.
The 700 Arctic terns present at the start of the breeding season on the Shetland island of Mousa failed to produce a single chick.
The organisation said the situation was "similarly miserable" on Orkney.
The RSPB's Doug Gilbert said: "The terrible season for critical colonies in the far north warns us that seabird populations remain in real danger."
