[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Tern looks very much like an Arctic Tern except that the Common Tern has black on the tip of the beak and the wings are a different shade.

In the Farne Islands, the Common Tern is outnumberd by Arctic Terns by about 10:1.

What an interesting POV, Dan!
You were right up in his face!
How did you manage that?
An unusual view of this bird that most people only see from far away.
Great shot. TFS. : )
