Common Terns at Camber sands

Summer seems finally here, so we took a Sunday afternoon trip down to Camber sands adjacent to Rye harbour nature reserve. Common Terns were happily feeding around us, as we paddled in the incoming tide - it was just a lovely experience. The Terns were doing more searching than diving though- so I struggled waiting for a more dramatic shot. Unsurprisingly, these birds and the local Sandwich terns from Rye Harbour NR, all carried rings - sadly I never got enough detail to read the letters. The Herring Gull below was too concentrated on fishing to be scared away. A few Mediterranean Gulls, as we first noticed last year, were raiding the rubbish bins by the car park entrance.
