Artic Terns can be found on many off shore Islands including the Farne Islands where I captured this photograph
With its long tail streamers and general shape the Arctic Tern deserves the local name of 'sea swallow'. Appearing white with a black cap, it is largely coastal although it can be seen inland on migration. It depends on a healthy marine environment and some colonies have been affected by fish shortages. Arctic terns are the ultimate long distance migrants - summer visitors to the UK and winter visitors to the Antarctic.
Thank you for looking at my photographs and for any comments it is much appreciated
