Terns attack!

This terrible attacks happens all the times! Poor humans they said.

Day 2 There's no day one!? Not really. The boat arrive so late that we have just time to bring all the food and clothes eat and sleep. That's why there's no day 1 at all.
Good morning. Because of the arrives of the big group we have things to do. My job this morning is to prepare a burner for the trash that can't be recycle. I wake up at 0530 an is cold up here around 60 F. So the day start cold burn for a while and I'm ready to band and trap Common and Roseate Terns.
