Gull-billed Tern settled in Glamorgan

In truly awful conditions this evening I did manage to get the video started on a few occasions between  more persistent periods of rain. These are a few video grabs of this seemingly settled bird? It was watched in it's favoured area, south of the Loughor Bridge, almost uninterrupted between 12:53 to 20:00 associating closely with the Black-headed Gull flock, by a number of observers.

Nice record shots Mark and thanks from all who visited yesterday evening for arranging access through the new rail bridge construction site,it was just a shame that the tern wasn't quite as obliging as the construction staff and kept it's distance.
Congrats as well on getting your image of the bird at WWT Penclacwydd on this week's Birdguides "Review of the Week".
