Arctic Tern

The Farne islands off the North East coast are a magnet for birders. The Arctic Tern is a favourite. The trip requires wearing armour on the head and it’s fun to see what people wear. We saw some unimformed souls without hats and they paid for it. A well placed stab with their sharp beaks will enable an Arctic Tern to draw blood. These are not isolated cases, most visitors will be attacked.
