Jekyll Point nursery school
Last Friday, I went out to the south end of Jekyll. There were all ages of terns. There were Least Terns resting before another attempt to catch a small fish or maybe even be feed a fish.
Here is a Royal Tern fledgling looking hopefully at any tern.
When that doesn't work, it gets up and begs. It didn't work the adult just walked off.
However for me, I enjoyed watching all the Sandwich Terns resting in the area.
This is a very young Sandwich Tern. The first time I saw one of these terns, I thought I had a rare species.
Of course that bubble was popped when the adult came in and feed it a fish. It might be hot getting to Jekyll Point but it worth it to stand in a nursery school of terns.
