Farne Islands Part 3 - The Sandwich Tern

The Sandwich Tern - Quite a large nesting colony of Sandwich Terns on Inner Farne, not as aggresive as the Arctic Tern colony, but very noisy and busy bringing back sand eels for their young. The largest tern out of the 5 species that frequent our shores through the summer.
Farne Islands Part 4 - The Eider coming soon!
