When you land on the Inner Farne you have to run the gauntlet of thousands of Terns nesting in the vicinity of the path from the jetty. There are chicks, eggs and Terns everywhere so you do have to look where you are putting your feet. As you walk up the path the Terns rise up en-masse and dive bomb you, if you do not wear a hat you run the risk of your head being cut open, they do hit you hard with the point of their beak, An interesting passage onto the island.
The Terns themselves are partaking of the never ending work of feeding their young, a relentless task as they land with the fish.
Then feed the very demanding young chicks.
