Default Caspian terns are back.

The tern are great to watch and they are back down at the local lagoon. Neat when they bring fish back for their mate.

Oh! They look a bit like oystercatchers. Great shots!

I have them too. The beaks are pretty big.

You have such a great selection of bird species near you, Kildare, I'm jealous! I suppose there are out-of-the-ordinary around here too but mostly it's the "garden variety" species. (probably shouldn't complain, they are great to watch as it is)
