Taking a Tern

Week 15; 10 April 2017 - Souk Sharq

With the daylight hours getting a little longer, it means on the way to work, I have some time to stop off at Souk Sharq Harbour and still get to work in good time.

This is the best time to be at the harbour, as the sun is behind and offers a good opportunity to photographs Gulls and Terns as they forage close to shore.

So the post for today is a Tern overdose, starting with Lesser Crested

Lesser Crested Tern (Sterna bengalensis)

and then Sandwich

Sandwich Tern (Sterna sandvicensis)

A Common Sandpiper passing by was just an opportunity to try the auto focus and it handled it pretty well for such a small bird against the sea

Common Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos)
The fisherman had also just come in, here they are prepping their nets for the next day's fishing
