Camera: Lumix DMC-FZ7. F8.0. Shutter speed: 1/640 sec. This is another photo from the Farne Islands the path used to come up from the boats onto one of the islands runs straight through an Artic tern Colony. The terns are incrediblly protective of there cicks and eggs so set about pecking and pooing on the tourists without any fear, one even used my head as a moblie perch. It took a while before I managed to get this photo as every time I got the Tern in view and focused they had an annoying habit of flying off or attacking me.
