A good tern #1

I’m still catching up from last weekend’s visit to Cairn Curran. Friday evening, 7th November, was warm and still and the birds seemed more relaxed than usual. These Caspian Terns were resting along the shoreline, seven in total – including breeding and non-breeding plumaged individuals. Nearby were a similar number of Whiskered Marsh Terns – more on them later.

Always a challenge to catch in flight.
