This Gull-billed Tern at Alton Water in Suffolk was a new bird for me in Britain. There was no sign when we arrived so after a short while, we decided to try somewhere else. Thankfully as we walked back to the car, we looked back to see a camera pointing towards this beast. Eventually, it took off and we enjoyed some great views of it fishing around the reserve from height- something I have seen them doing on rivers in Europe and Australia.
