Arctic Tern Chick

by Tom Curtis April. 27, 2017 463 views

With its long tail streamers and general shape the Arctic tern deserves the local name of 'sea swallow'. Appearing white with a black cap, it is largely coastal although it can be seen inland on migration. The chicks look very cute and are well protected by the parents.These pictures were taken on a visit to the Farne Islands off the coast of Northumberland England.
