Friday Quickie...

Friday dawned with another week of night shifts complete, so after a few hours in bed to recover I headed to the coast to clear the heavy head cobwebs. The destination was a blustery but sunny St Mary's where four roseate tern (1 juv) were readily observed sitting on the rocks below the promenade. With little else to see I headed inland to West Hartford where the birding was a little better - 180 black-headed gull dominated the diminishing flash, with two green sandpiper (both flew south at 15:30) and a single little-ringed plover lurking on the exposed mud. The field held one juv stonechat but little else...!
