Terns spring up out of the murk!

In among yesterdays blustery showers we popped out onto the outer breakwater in search of porpoises. None were seen but as we were about to leave a little flurry of birds appeared out of the murk. several gulls were accompanies by a couple of terns. I then spotted a gull chasing a very small bird which I soon realised was a little tern. I missed the first flurry with the camera but two more terns flew past into the harbour and I manged to fire off a couple of shots which revealed them to be Sandwich Terns, so two good terns in one!
