A wonderful sight : Caspian Tern diving for fish

Today as I walked along the lake, I noticed a Caspian tern flying high above the lake looking for fish. The tern can easily be mistaken for the common gull unless you notice the distinctive orange beak and a black cap on its head. It flew several rounds scanning the surface of the lake with its beak pointing downwards. I stopped on my track and watched.

Suddenly I got to witness the tern do a swift dive into the lake and up it came with a small fish on its beak. What a breathtaking sight. It made my day! Here is a picture I got from
