This time of the year Forster’s Terns are a common sight at EBF. Last week I stopped my car when I saw more than a dozen of them hovering in the air and diving into a pond to catch fish. The terns ignored me and went on with their aerial acrobatics as if no one was around.

In the following photo this tern was hovering, flapping its wings but its eyes were fully concentrated on any prey lurking beneath the water.
