Fishing Little Terns - Jubail

During the summer months along the eastern province coast of the Arabian Gulf, Little Terns are a common breeding visitor. They are normally seen at some distance either flying around or resting on mudflats. Occasionally they find good feeding areas closer to the shore and then give good views. Trying to photograph them is tricky as they fly fast and trying to get shots of birds fishing even more difficult as their dives are extremely fast.  I spent quite a bit of time trying to get shots of birds entering the water with limited success, as handling a large 600mm lens for prolonged periods trying to photograph the terns is not an easy job with the below shots the best I could manage.
