Always wear a hat!

By czech  
This shot was taken on one of the Farne Islands, where there is a breeding colony of Common terns. The walkways run through the nesting area and some of the nests are virtually adjacent, and to deter humans from any malevolent action they tend to peck you on the head as you pass their nest.
