Unprecedented autumnal movement of Arctic Tern - should have sea-watched Heysham for a bit! A cross-country movement along the south side of the weather front straddling the country SW to NE just to the north of us most of the morning?

Incidentally there is a chance, albeit small, of the Sooty Tern along our coast - just been going through the Sandwich tern colour ring sightings for the county bird report and quite a few presumed x country from Ythan area in mid autumn
