Sandwich Tern (Sterna sandvicensis)

  I love watching terns - they're beautiful, agile, noisy, bold and just fun! I saw my first Sandwich Terns at Church Norton
(Pagham Harbour, Chichester, West Sussex) in September 2010. Fantastic!
 
Here are two of my favourite Sandwich Tern shots. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger version.
