a glint in the eye ......

Common Terns are back in force with their squabbling keee-yaah call as they fly around the reserve.

I always find them easier to photograph over the River Nene as they tend to fly within the confines of the river banks whereas they can be very unpredictable and distant over the gravel pits.

A very welcome addition to our summer species.


  1. They're definately a welcomed visitor. I overheard a non birder describe them as angel like and thought, how apt. Great shot.

  2. That a great description Douglas.
