One good tern deserves another

An enjoyable early autumn day today. First Black Tern of the year was a juvenile on the tideline this morning, with a juvenile Roseate sitting just a few yards away! Offshore a couple of manxies and a Bonxie (Great Skua) drifted past, while there was a couple of Greenshank and a smart Black-tailed Godwit in the burn near the car park.

Wader numbers are certainly building up, with 540 Oystercatcher, 460 Lapwing, 440 Curlew and 250 Grey Plover on the incoming tide this afternoon.
