Kos Part 2: 06/05/2011

The wind generally increased in the late afternoons and was, as previously stated, from a northerly quarter, and when viewing from the north-east end of  the 'alikes' the terns were feeding towards the observer straight in to the wind but with the sun more or less behind the birds. This proved a photographic challenge, but the results were pleasing. A small number of Black Tern would feed by gradually moving forward dipping on the surface of the lake until finally the would turn back and start over again. They did this numerous times seemingly unaware of  the camera.
