CommentI picked this image as these birds were on mass feeding of the insects clouding the area. The birds would continually move along the top of the scrub picking up insects as they went. It was remarkably interesting to see this behaviour. One insect can be seen captured in the beak of the central Tern with another flying just in front on it’s eye.
