Arctic tern

July saw my first trip to the Farne Islands in breeding season and it certainly won't be my last. I'm not sure that the colour scheme in this photo would work in my living room - but it's certainly dramatic in the proper setting. If you like bird photos I can recommend my brothers blog - especially during Wild Bird Wednesday.

I remember that location! Nice picture.

I think I'll be going with terns next week.

It does make for a nice contrast with the red legs as an extra touch.
