Common Tern / Visdief / Sterne pierregarin (Sterna hirundo)
I went to the countryside north of Amsterdam and found a colony of Common Terns breeding and fishing. I have tons of images and will upload some more in the coming days.

Uncropped.

Levina de Ruijter has replied to Suus
Hoi Suus!! Ja, een Stern, maar dat is een familie van vogels en je hebt dus verschillende soorten Sterns (Sternen?). Dit is een Visdief. En om het nog lastiger te maken heet een Visdief in het Engels Tern (zonder S ervoor dus!) :).

Excellent shot, good definition on the wing feathers. These birds are such good acrobatic flyers, they drop down so quickly to the water then skim along the surface before gaining height again.

Levina de Ruijter has replied to Frank Roolooth
Oh yes, they are excellent flyers and fishermen! I have a short stop-motion video in my stream of one diving into the water. These birds are great to watch and great to photograph. Thank you very much, Frank.
