28.04.21 Terns…

A light but cool NE wind light rain showers developing by midmorning.

A brief seawatch from 08.00 to around 10am. Visibility was impeded slightly further offshore. A very pronounced passage of Tern was apparent and replicated at other south coastal sites, notably Dungeness. There were at least 700+ Common and Arctic Tern passing Birling Gap within that time along with, 2 Black Tern, 7 Little Gull, c50 Brent Geese, c150 Common Scoter, 3 Diver sp, and 2 Eider.

A quick look at the headland yielded little, on to West Rise where the precipitation had congregated c150 Swallows and Martins along with c30 Swift. 8 Yellow Wagtail were also on site.
