Roseate Tern from Wernffrwd

1 Roseate Tern was among a massive flock of c800 Common Terns feeding in the inlet near the big mound at Wernffrwd, yesterday evening. Also 1 Black Tern, 23+ Little Tern(including many juvs), 20+ Arctic Tern and 40 Sandwich Tern. (BS)

This morning from first light. 1 Black Tern, c20 Little Tern, c30 Sandwich Tern and a handful of Common Terns in very blustery conditions. Hopefully more later....

Well done both. Excellent records, esp. Little Tern numbers. Hopefully a Rosy Tern (please) this end of the county!

The terns never performed very well this evening, but I'm sure they're still around so well worth checking the Burry or even Blackpill on the weekend tides.
