Yellow-legged Gull, juvenile, Dungeness, 5/7/15

Dungeness, 5/7/2015,
by the fishing boats, 14.00 hours - 18.00 hours, MS, RB, me

Mediterranean Gull, juvenile, 1
Black-headed Gull, juvenile, 1
Yellow-legged Gull, juvenile, 1

Thank's to MC who came out of his way to let us know that a
Roseate Tern, a smart adult, was seen  around the point.

Lesser Black-backed Gull, 2nd summer

It must have been 18.00 hours, we could see DW, NB and his Mum on the point looking at Terns feeding 'close to shore'.
Eagle eye MS says he can see the Roseate through his bins (at least half a mile) ! !

With RB, I took the opportunity to ''break away from the Gulls'', and head to the point where we had good 'bins views', in good light, of the Roseate Tern.

***ROSEATE TERN***     New ''TICK'' on my GB list for me ! ! !  (306)

Always a stunning day at Dungeness.
