CommentOver the past two weekends I've spent hours among a large flock of Greater Crested Terns. I had initially set out hoping to find some Fairy Terns at a known breeding spot but I was too late, they've moved on. Although much more common, watching these Crested Terns was fascinating and they were quite comfortable with my presence. This adult had just landed from an unsuccessful dive and was ruffling its feathers as its now rather large chick begged to be fed.
