Boat safari to the river tern island

Bhadra backwaters welcomes around 5000 river terns every year from northern Himalayas. They come in January and stay till early June. It's also their breeding season. Till the young ones learn to fly and hunt they stay here and 6 months is just about the right period for them to learn the tricks of the trade. I managed to capture a river tern fishing in this island. The next nearby island also welcomes couple of dozens of small pratincoles. Here are couple of those frames from the island.
