Angel or devil? by inthecloud5

Angel or devil?

The arctic terns looked so graceful in the air but they are feisty birds, constantly squabbling and trying to steal fish from each other when they're flying in to feed the chicks.

They're fiercely protective of their young, we saw several Great Skuas fly close to the colony, as soon they're spotted by one of the terns, the alarm call sounds out and they all take to the air together to chase them away. An impressive display.

Thanks for all your comments on recent images, very much appreciated.

Hopefully just about caught up with June, need to get on with July now!
sooooo beautiful! interesting to hear about the terns ... thank you ...
