Been to the site again today and thought I would post some images of aerial combat between two Common Tern. This is definately aggressive behaviour. One of the Tern has been using the east shoreline as a spot to catch crabs. Another tried to 'muscle in' and that is when this s.... took place.
The result of this fight was that both Tern split the shore-line in two. Each sitting on a rock on their side of the dividing line before resuming the fishing.
I am trying to keep these postings in 'themes' and thought this deserved an entry of its own. I shall shortly post new images of the changes on the colony islands since the last posting.
