Five Tern Day

At the very South of Lady Island Lake, where the lake almost meets the sea, there is a cut in the dunes where some of the Terns that breed on the Lakes` Islands cross to the open sea to go foraging for fish.
The Terns approach in different ways and directions as they pass by at some speed, makes getting the flight shots a challenge.
I came here hoping to see Roseate Terns (which was successful) and managed to see all 5 of our breeding Terns at this site within the hour
Roseate Tern , Arctic Tern, Common Tern, Little Tern and Sandwich Tern
Thats a Good hour!
