The combined Arctic Tern total of non-duplicated birds between Heysham and the Stone Jetty plus Heyshsm skeer was 2910, also 65 Black Tern - a lot including flock of 28 went in during the heavy rain early am, 19 Arctic and two Pomarine Skua, one adult Hobby. By far the best birding of the year so far!

A little Tern, a Roseate Tern and the two Poms were seen from the SJ only. The Hobby and majority of the Black Tern were in three flocks (one mixed with Arctic) when Nick was on a break

Worth checking this evening - all three observers have now left - definite chance to add to the tally especially if any more rain materialises

5.15pm. Jenny Brown's Point
Flock of 30 Arctic Tern into the bay and heading inland toward Leighton Moss. Lost view from there but probably continued (didn't see them come out.).
