So Juvenile

Other than working, haven't done much this weekend sadly. Did manage to nip over to Watermead CP South late this afternoon more in hope than expectation. A juv Arctic Tern has been knocking about though I expected it to be gone - but luckily it wasn't. Good views in late afternoon sunshine and strong wind. I tried to get a few shots but they pretty much amounted to nothing. The damned thing seemed to follow a set circuit up and down the water until I got into position and pointed the camera, at which point it would change it's route and start another circuit. Nice clean white rump and forehead, dark black-looking bill and whitish secondaries. Not that the following grainy crop helps paint the picture ...
