I have always been fascinated by seabirds. As a child on holiday I would watch them for ages, soaring and diving. I think I envied them their connection with the sea – which hopefully one day will be my joy to live by too. The common tern is such a beautiful bird – so small and delicate yet, at the same time, strong and angular…seen here diving into the gathering swell.
