Arctic Tern - Sterna paradisaea - 7 - Ny Alesund, Svalbard

Svalbard / Spitsbergen pictures, travel in the Arctic

Arctic Terns (Sterna paradisaea) at Ny Alesund, Svalbard. This picture was taken near to the nesting grounds, the birds dislike anything approaching their nests or looking like it might approach their nest and this seems to include each other even when the bird in question occupies the adjacent nest, so aerial squabbling is common.
