This is a post I wrote some time ago, but it got lost in the cloud. I thought I'd post it now to remind me of some good summer birding. Hope you enjoy it too.
On my way to the Farne Islands in the Summer I made a special visit to Amble in Northumberland. From there I could take a boat out to Coquet Island to see the UK's only breeding colony of Roseate Terns. These terns have a really nice pink tinged breast. I've only ever seen them here, so when I head to the north east in the summer, I can't leave them out.
We have 3 types of Tern in this picture along with the Puffins. The largest Tern, front left, is a Sandwich Tern, while the two smaller birds to the right of this with black bills are the Roseate Terns. The others that you can see with orange bills are Arctic Terns.
There were plenty of seals around our boat around the island.
