TWISTING AND TERNING

Arrived home late afternoon today after spending a day in the North East of the county, and was looking forward to a relaxing evening. Did I get one "No" shortly after arriving home I had a call from a birding pal Paul Freestone to say that there was a Black Tern at St Gothian Sands Godrevy.
So asked the good lady to put the  Dinner on hold and grabbed the gear and headed off, I arrived to find the bird still over the pool ,but boy it was very active and after an hour and 185 shots I called it a day and headed home.

So below are a few images of this beautiful little Autumn visitor.

  2. Amazing! There is a small colony of breeding black terns on a little river in Maine (quite uncommon) that I miss every spring because I leave for Nova Scotia. I'm dying to see them, but your pictures are almost as good as being there! ~karen

  9. Good shooting Monty. I managed to catch up with one on a local pond but far to far away for any lens. FAB.
