Juv Arctic Tern.

Initially identified as a Common tern, juveniles are not easy!

It was very approachable sat on the far bank of Lisvane Reservoir. Occasionaly it would fly off to fish and return to attempt to swallow its prey. Sticklebacks, to which it struggled, it would swallow them  then bring it back up, eventually it managed to keep them down!
