Arctic Terns still at bridge this evening

There were still around 100 Arctic and a couple of Common Terns around Loughor Bridge at dusk. They must have had fairly slim pickings as they were even feeding after dusk. All I could see them picking up were tiny fish/crustaceans no more than 1cm long. I suspect with the wind dropping tomorrow they will be off on their long journey again. It's been the best spring arrival of this species I've ever witnessed in the 24 years I've been watching the Burry and wonderful to see them so close.
