Terns on sea


Local patch: two or three Common Terns are now patrolling the coast in front of my house on a daily basis. Yesterday also a Sandwich Tern went by which is a good record for the area.
I checked many times the sea for any shearwater movement, but got just an adult Med Gull.
This morning a female/immature Golden Oriole flying over the woodland was the highlight, along with one of the resident Woodpigeons.
