Roseate Tern Day

Caught up with a couple of Roseate Terns in with Common Terns  plenty of Juvenile Common but  no juvenile Roseate with these adults  also feeding around the area Sandwich Terns but again at the time no juveniles . A Guillemot with young on the river I believe it's the male that rears them when they leave the nest site 
 Adult Roseate Tern
 Juvenile Common Tern
 Adult Roseate I took advantage as it was now on it's own but they flew just after ,into the light unfortunately  so still no flight shots
The jostle for position

 Adult Common Tern it brought in a sand eel  which it held for sometime before swallowing it
 The Adult Common Tern which brought in a Sand Eel but with no takers it ate it itself !
 Calling in the hope of a feed   !!!!!

There seems plenty of time to just loaf around
Wing stretch but for my purposes on the wrong side
Adult Male Guillemot brings it's Juvenile into the river to feed .
