5 Bee-Eater at Axe Cliff & Whiskered Tern pics

Bee-Eater is one of those birds that I've always wanted to see but never had up until today. I tend to like birds with an exotic type aesthetic and this species certainly has that. This is one of those rare occasions where I'll post some TERRIBLE pics; I'm just glad to have seen a Bee-Eater (and the other four)! Head over to Karen's blog for some decent pics; she was simply in the right place at the right time. Well done Karen! The birds were a good couple hundred yards away for my pics; I got perhaps 10 seconds of viewing before they flew off, not to be seen locally again.

Now for some more pics of the Whiskered Tern where it was me who was fortunate to be in the right place in the right time. It put on a brief but fantastic show:

I have more photos of the Ross's Gull to post when I've sorted through them...
