Some couples are more shy..these Common Terns are still displaying! Probably failed breeders or frigid virgins.
On nestcount day (where some of the above photos were obtained), we walked every inch of Inner Farne in order to tally our land nesting bird numbers. During this process we had the honour of walking through all sorts of colonies, but the mixed Sandwich Tern/Common Tern/Black-headed Gull colony on Central Meadow was by far the highlight! It made your senses invert!
And some more recent happenings...
1st summer Arctic Tern (probably). One of the few places these bird apear in the UK
And I'll end on a cliche shot...Birds are good.
