Farne Island Tern

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

I had my first visit to the Farnes recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Unfortunately it wasn’t possible to get onto Staple Island due to the weather but we were able to land on the Farnes. These Arctic Terns were very busy protecting their young and thought nothing of attacking anything deemed too close for its own comfort.

This one was taken wide angle which is the first time that I have used that type of lens for bird photography.
