One good tern....or 15 of them

A bit of catch up last night after some gallivanting. House Martin before I stopped the car, Sedge Warbler before I'd got out and then 3 Wheatears on the rounds. Out to sea, the star turn/tern was a flock (yes a flock no less) of Little Terns - 15 or more, jinking, dipping, fluttering and generally making merry just offshore. Little Terns are almost, but not quite, annual and never before in numbers greater than can be counted on the fingers of a one-handed person. Arctic Tern rounded off proceedings to bring me up to the Joe 90 too (or 72.78%).
