Common Tern(Sterna hirundo) - Drinking on the Wing

I am fortunate to have a few nesting colonies of common Tern close to home. Always entertaining and offers lots of photo opportunities. But they aren't always the easiest birds to photograph as they are really quick and agile in the air, earning themselves the nickname "Sea Swallow".

Here we have a bird taking a drink while in flight on a really hot sunny day. Fingers crossed for this particular colony, last year one night all the young were taken from the nests....no one knows what took them, but the prime suspect to this day was a local Heron whop had taken a real shine to this site.
