These images are from a trip we took quite a while ago now. We went up to Northumbria for the weekend and stayed in the most random hotel/pub. Random spur of the moment trips away are certainly one of the things I miss most now I'm a parent! Anyway, as well as causing uproar in the pub by taking somebodies regular seats at the Pub Quiz, we took a boat ride out to The Farne Islands to see all the birds shortly before they migrated for the winter.
There weren't as many birds as there could have been, but that was probably for the best. Whilst we didn't get dive-bombed by the terns ourselves, we had a number of near misses. I can only imagine what it's like at prime egg hatching time!!
