Taking a Turn

By Briwooly
This one was taken on the trip to the Farne Islands ( Inner Farne ) in Northumberland

A amazing fact.
An Arctic Tern ringed as an unfledged chick on the Farne Islands, Northumberland, UK, in the northern summer of 1982, it Then reached Melbourne, Australia, in October 1982, a sea journey of over 22,000 km (14,000 mi) in just three months from fledging

Thanks as always for you looks clicks and comments on my last efforts

A superb in-flight capture of this tern and what a journey you describe in your intro and at such a tender age.
