Farne Islands - Arctic Terns

Puffins were to take a back seat today (well nearly!) as I concentrated on a variety of birds and other inhabitants! Whilst I saw five species of Tern here last year, it was down to the usual three with Arctic Tern being the most abundant. Here's a few pics of  'em......

Getting ready to walk the gauntlet?


Surprisingly accommodating, I never got  hit once (apart from white stuff!)


Fish carrying was obligatory!



And of course flight!


Small fish....



Medium sized.....




An interesting angles being contrived!




These two seemed to getting on famously....


But I never worked out whether this was food pass or a mugging!


Dolphins, Seals and other seabirds to follow......
