2nd Summer Arctic Terns at Rutland Water

On Friday the 30th May 2014 Chris Lythall spotted these Arctic terns in the North Arm of Rutland Water.

It is quite rare to see Arctic terns in this second summer plumage at Rutland Water as they don’t normally return to breed until they are in full adult plumage.
