This spring and summer I tried to spend some time at the tern colony at Malön. All visits are very dependable to nice weather as my transport to this Island is my kayak. Most of the Pictures were taken in the beginning of May when the pair building and courting is taken Place. Presumable the male catched a nice fish to show to the female. Once this showing off fish were catched, it was used over and over again. When it was too dry – he dipped it in the water to refresh it, hence the imagaes where you see a low flying bird with some splashes.
In the lower part of this gallery I show Another tern – Little Tern – it is a rare Swedish breeder. The last images are from some magic summer evening moments.
