Gull-billed Tern

Gull-billed Tern at Ivy Lake, Chichester in July 1999.
According to the messages on the pager, this Gull-billed Tern was "showing" down to 20 feet. Well, it was, but not perched on a post as I imagined whilst driving down to Chichester. In fact it was flying circuits of the lakes, and from time to time would fly past very close. Most of my photos, especially the close ones were out-of-focus. However, these four were taken when the bird was further away - and therefore easier to focus on!
