Looking for terns
We've waited a very long time, but it had to happen at some point. For the first time in what seemed like eons we finally got some decent weather conditions conducive to migration.
After a slow start we registered:
4 Common Buzzard - including a gorgeous pale phase bird hundreds of feet overhead
c3 Peregrine - including 1 customarily perched on the Tate Modern
1 House Martin - plus 10 distant hirundines that may have been Swallows
3 Great Black-backs
c10 Lesser Black-backs
c20 Herring Gull
c50 Black-headed Gull
1 unidentified tern species watched flying due south over the rooftops
Let's hope that our luck is beginning to change.
