During my travels last week I paid a visit to a few friends who are wardens at the Little Tern colony at Kilcoole Beach in County Wicklow. I managed to photograph some of the Little Terns flying up and down the beach. While I was there we came across a wide range of wildlife as can be seen from the selection of photographs below.
