5th September 2017

Jack and I were in the Bay from 09.00 - 11.30. A moderate SW with good visibility, poor visibility, drizzle, sunshine etc! Our first few scans gave us the best birds with a Black Tern (pretty scarce for us and a lot closer than the photos below would have you believe) and an Arctic Skua harrying terns offshore. Other than that it wasn't great, 464 Sandwich Terns were drifting down channel, 40-50 Gannets offshore, a Mediterranean Gull, a couple of Shags were close by, two Curlews and 50 Swallows headed down channel and a Wheatear landed on the beach.
