Elegant Tern - Clare/Galway

An Elegant Tern with its big yellow bill was playing King of the castle on the small island on the hottest day of the year 
I visit this colony every year and always hoped one day of a rare Tern here and they dont come much rarer than a bird that comes from around Pacific Mexico
 Im having a afternoon sleep when `BING`5pm and news came through of a Tern with a yellow bill at my local Tern colony on the Clare/Galway border. 30 minutes later and Im helping the land owner heard a few sheep into a field,[land permission costs] Ive known the old famer a good few years and today he was 85yo, a quick chat and off across the limestone fields to the Terns
