190513 common terns (1)

I hadn’t seen any tern species in 2019 until my birding trip to Kent, yet during those five days we saw four species, Common, Little, Sandwich and, incredibly, about 40 Black terns during a detour to the Farmoor Reservoir in Oxfordshire on our way home to Wales.

All but the Commons were rather distant so here are some photos of Common terns I managed to grab (the photos, not the terns!).
