Arctic Terns stopping off

Despite the noise from the railway bridge construction works and the wind that was gusting hard, Loughor Bridge provided the perfect viewing platform for watching over 150 Arctic Terns stopping off on their way to their northerly breeding areas. Birds were widely scattered with groups feeding and resting at various points, one feeding flock being directly below the bridge providing an unusual photo opportunity.
Also present were three Whimbrel, an adult Little Gull (a very pink individual), a Grey Seal and an immature Spoonbill, which flew off down the estuary (prob. to WWT) at 10:50.
