No Tern

A little more was moving on the sea off Whitburn this morning, but still pretty quiet. Still, any morning with a Long-tailed Skua is a good morning. Full results here.

At Whitburn Steel the two Little Stint were showing down to a few feet, unfortunately the light made photography difficult.

Little Stint

The day went down hill from here. A report of a White-winged Black Tern dragged me down to Seaton Carew, but unfortunately it had moved on by the time I got down. The world's most photographed Mediterranean Gull was at Newburn Bridge. I was near, so popped in to see the Pectoral Sandpiper at Greatham Creek, along with a Little Stint.

News that the tern had reappeared at South Gare dragged ne further south, but again to no avail. 5+ Roseate Tern were scant reward. At least I got a go on the Transporter Bridge.
