These images are from my trip to Scotland in June-July in 20012. It was a real pleasure to visit the Arctic Tern colony. Even if they liked to attack your head. They had eggs and chicks were all over the place so one had to be careful walking there. And the terns were very protective of their young of course. The last image raised questions, the tern is sitting on a mans hat.

  3. The baby is not so beautiful as his parent ... but with the orange beak, has a good start:) The picture of the Artic Tern in flight is exquisite and the last comment raised a good question ... what is the last Tern sitting on?

  8. I've never seen a tern baby, even though I see a lot of terns on our beaches. That's neat. Funny on the that!
