 on the way in we went past the Nw shore of Wooden Ball,  near the current location of a Cormorant colony we saw a few Arctic terns, and Coco spotted this fledgling, the bird on the right, demonstrating that this small colony of about 8 pairs were not entirely unsuccessful, despite being on a very tough gull island.
