Little Tern on Crymlyn Burrows Beach

 1 adult Little Tern came in to roost with the wader flock, this evening, on Crymlyn Burrows Beach. It would periodically go out into the bay to fish and then return to where the main group of waders were roosting/feeding to rest up and preen. The Little Tern was also seen to be supporting a metal ring on its right leg as shown below.
Also present Turnstone (10), Ringed Plover (150+), Knot (2), Sanderling (240+) and Dunlin (356). Mediterranean Gulls again in small numbers with 8 on the beach including 3 adults and 5 2cy birds
