A couple of poorish photos of the same extremely pale Common Tern that was present for several days. This bird, whilst fairly easily identifable at close range, did an annoyingly good Arctic Tern impression when it was halfway or more across Stewartby Lake....
A normal-looking adult Common Tern. These terns are almost constantly patrolling for small fry along the edge of Stewartby Lake over the Summer months.
