Crosby Marina,
News of an Adult white winged black tern on the marina had me hurrying in that direction. As I arrived the tern flew over into Seaforth NR where it landed on the causeway with the hundreds of common tern. Ten minutes later it was back on the marina and showed really well. It was moulting from summer plumage to winter plumage and was a very smart bird.

I then popped into Seaforth to see if I could get some closer views of it on the causeway but it flew back on to the marina as I arrived.

Hale marsh,
A quick visit this morning produced a young wheatear, 2 blackwits and a curlew.
