Comments:
The Terns arrived over a month ago. After being here for a few weeks, they disappeared, well, almost. only a few stragglers remain. The capelin hasn't come ashore and that is their main food during nesting season. this one was out in the middle of the arm diving and picking up plankton. nesting will be late if there is one this year. Didn't get a pic, though.
