 Tern duty again this week like most afternoons with the weather looking rather naff again and yet again i was going get a soaking again ,like most evenings so far ,so i took a slow walk behind the chalets up to the sea wall and on the third from last post ,i notice a small raptor closer look it turn out to be a hobby patch year tick .

what happened for the next hour or so was just amazing the bird dropped onto the beach, i think to let me past

all the time i was snapping away and the bird did worry at all that i was there,then it flipped up and flew off,thinking that was that i carried on walking and the bird landed right in front of me from know where
so i carried on walking and walked right past it,then mike phoned and said he was on his way up so i turned around and walked straight up to the bird which just looked at me as i strolled past

all these photos are uncropped and just resized that how close it was,as i was walking up to meet mike the bird flew up to try to catch a st marks fly and crashed straight into the barbed wire fence but a quick tussle it freed it self as i was legging it fast as i could to help it ,was on the post looking fine and undamaged before i even got there phew .
the next  hour was just a joy watching the bird feeding and just sitting on the wall while me and mike was having a ball,we left it sitting on the wall as we headed home,a day not to forget 

i even got a little tern shot to round a cracking day off
