MANY SHADES OF GREY

CRESTED TERN

THALASSEUS BERGII

Crested terns photographed at Montague Island Nature Reserve while boating. More than 90 bird species have been identified on the island reserve. Fifteen species of birds nest there, including the highly vocal crested tern. I loved the colours of the setting, with different shades of greys, contrasting with the abstract poo.
