[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Looking back at my posts this year it seems to have been the year of the terns, with quite a few artic terns from iceland yet unposted. This is one from my trip to the camargue in may. Landing on the same pile of dirt all the time, making this photo was mostly studying it's flying patterns and knowing when it would land, and then be ready,

have a nice weekend

Hi Jeroen
What a lovely photo of a Tern. I an not an expert but the black tip of the beak could identify it as a breeding Common Tern. The tail and feathers seem to be white and not grey so it could be an Artic Tern as you state. Please correct me if I am wrong.
