[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brownsea Island can be found within Poole Harbour, Dorset. Its a magical place if you can beat the crowds of Holiday makers, especially during the spring. Photography is fairly easy with many Terns, Gulls and Waders found close in to the hides, especially at High tide.

This Common Tern was photographed near to the Jetty as you get on/off the boat back to Poole.

Nikon D40 & Sigma 150-500mm

Hi dennis. Firstly welcome to TN. Brownsea is a place i know well as i live in Dorset. This is a good close up of the Common Tern. I like the pose you have captured with its head to one side. taken with good feather detail and natural colours. Well taken TFS.
