Exeter Canal White-winged Black Tern

I took a few quick pictures as the juvenile passed quickly along the canal at the viewpoint this morning. It was feeding over surface pondweed, especially when canoes passed by - presumably taking advantage of the insects they disturbed. (Notable amongst the latter were Red-eyed and Small Red-eyed Damselflies).
