Terns at Pembrey Harbour

 I visited the Tern roost at Pembrey Harbour over the last couple of evenings. As one of the last sandbars in the Burry Inlet to flood on the very high tides, large numbers of Terns gather here. There was a Roseate Tern here on the 1st which I missed by about 5mins and it wasn't seen at all yesterday. But, I could hardly describe myself as disappointed leaving this location on either night since the spectacle that these most elegant of birds make when gathering in such high numbers is always captivating,
