If I ever needed another excuse to visit Anglesey, what better excuse than to be able to tick a lifer in the form of an Elegant Tern. This bird was mingling within a Tern colony that included Sandwich, Common, Arctic and when I visited a pair of Roseate Terns.
It's completely off track from where it should be, but it does appear that this particular bird is one that had been in France recently. This is only the second record for Wales, and it really stood out amongst the colony. It had it's own perch and always returned to it after a flight.
It kept me entertained that's for sure,
Such beautiful photos of this elegant tern.
I enjoyed it.
