A variety of Terns seasonally patrol the fishponds of Hong Kong's northwest New Territories. Whiskered, White-winged, Little and Common are among the more frequent takers of small fish.
This low-key theft is usually a discreet business, but the World's Biggest Tern doesn't do "discreet".
This Caspian Tern managed to look like a jumbo jet crashing as it went in head first for whatever it could get, and it came out of the water with a lot of droplets shaken and scattered all over the place…. but don't take my word for it…
Caspian Terns - Hydroprogne caspia
A "Good Spring" for admirers of this species. In mid-April there were nearly two hundred of them at Mai Po Nature Reserve.
