Gull-billed Tern:Loughor

Few record shots from Wed evening,thanks to Mark Hipkin for arranging access through the new railway bridge construction site,unfortunately the tern was not as cooperative as Carillion and never came close enough to get a quality photo.

Well done to both Mark and yourself for getting any kind of shot there. I wonder if anyone knows if the Penrice bird was photographed? It would be good to have a pic on file.

Mark Hipkin said...

Thanks Barry. Yes, well done Jeff getting the shots. It was very nice to catch up with a number of friendly faces on Thursday. I think everyone went away happy, and that was most rewarding.

Yes, well done both.
