Spent the morning amidst a small colony of Sandwich Terns on Brownsea Island. I am now completely deaf!
They appear some of the most random birds I have ever observed. They catch fish prolifically, particularly sand eels. That's the good bit. They then return to the colony and land in front of a chick calling for food. As the chick lurches forward for the food they realise they have the wrong chick and fly off again, circling the colony before having another go. This can happen several times before a chick is successfully fed. Then the whole cycle starts again. Great fun.
The sun certainly shone on me today and is still doing so. I hope you were as lucky.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
