Aerial Assault

This evening watched a pair of Arctic Skuas buzz a Little Tern colony and thought there would be carnage, but they erupted on mass and saw them off. One plucky little fellow continued to mob one of them until it was well out of their territory. The size difference was amazing.

Hi Paul, yes i never cease to be amazed at the response of smaller birds to larger birds that are threatening them and/or their young :)
