Wilson’s Prom and a Crested Tern (WBW)

Crested Tern, Wilson's Prom, Victoria

Memories of a summer holiday on the far side of the world. It was cold, very windy and threatening to rain, so in traditional British holiday-maker fashion we set off with Stewart to go for a walk on the beach. Would have missed this chappie if Stewart had not pointed him out to me, trying to disguise itself as a silver gull.

Shortly after this the weather turned from merely bad to positively atrocious, but somehow it didn’t seem to matter. Even cowering in my cagoule to avoid getting my sandwiches soaked seemed like a worthy adventure. So…when can we do Antarctica?

if you enjoy pictures of birds – there are plenty more at Wild Bird Wednesday – why not join in the fun. You wont even have to get cold and wet.

Glad to see that you have finally found a use for annoying younger brothers!!

Pleased to have pointed out one of my favourite, and photographically cooperative birds!

Cheers.
