A very welcome call from Rob at 7pm Saturday evening to say that Andrew was watching 2 Roseate Terns which were perched on a yellow buoy off Ness Point, soon found me at Ness Point. But sadly for the 4th year running I was to be thwarted yet again in seeing my first ever Roseate Terns in Lowestoft. They had just flown, and they didn't return, same old story!
Late June and July can often be a good time to check the Terns on the groynes in the hope of a Roseate, especially if they have been sighted at Minsmere & Breydon which they had been seen during this time.
We did enjoy good views of a close Harbour Porpoise just 100 yards out from the Point and a group of 12 Common Scoters and a few Gannets flying North.
