TERNS AGAIN.

Some of these images are not up to standard,but I thought it was worth showing some of the comings and goings in the day to day life of these charming birds. 1 Bragging 2 The young one swallowed this fish whole 3 Removing eggshell 4Cleaning bill 5 6 Posing 7 The reality of removing a dead young Tern.







The Young Ones.

The weather is miserable,so I'am trying to catch up on my blog.In early july the young Commom Terns gave me plenty of opportunities for catching some action and I have posted a few of my attempts below.

PEREGRINE ACTION.

A few images of the male and female Peregrine Falcon's in Preston.I can't believe how much bigger the female looks towards the male,she's certainly a bully.Any comments on the size difference.
