CommentLittle Tern feeding juvenile at Merries Reef. The adults circle calling loudly until their chick flies off and lands a distance from any roosting seabirds. The transfer usually only takes a fraction of a second, which avoids piracy by Silver Gulls, but in this case the fish was so large it took the juvenile a few seconds to gulp down.

LocationMerries Reef, Boat Harbour, Sydney (New South Wales)
