By suejoh
Picture of a Tern. I am told that as it's beak has no black spot then it is an Arctic Tern.
Taken on South Uist last week.

Very good photo of one of these beautiful birds. I agree with the assessment that it's an Arctic Tern, the Common Tern having a black tip to the beak. But if you're unsure, you can do what many birders do and combine the two names, thus: "Comic Tern" Wink
