Nowt great but nice fix all the same.

Not been down to the pier area all week! so needed a fix this evening. About 40 Common terns at the north end of Sandhaven settled on the rocks here on this visit...No other species of tern present unfortunately. But nice all the same just to sit and watch the Common terns for half a hour going about thier business. Only a handfull of waders about highlight being 3 Knots flying over the pier heading south.( first one's ive seen since winter).

This adult Med. gull was on the mid. section of the Leas this evening, theres been a few reported laterly especially as watchers are looking at gulls in our area hoping to pick up the Bonaparte's gull that favours the ploughed fields around Whitburn/Cleadon area and the Whitburn to Roker beaches.

Still no sign of the Marsden car park Med. gull that has wintered for a few years at this site.

And Max now needs another "bust" full size football, his favourite beach toy was last seen floating out on the out going tide just by the first gate from the pier. Thankfully the mut had the sense not to swim after it( too far) after being kicked into the sea from Little haven.
