North Beach Seawatch
Joining Rene B< Rob Wil & Andrew E on beach we watched a range of maritme species. The immature Black Tern flew in from north, settled on the groyne I managed to get some pics. A seawatch included a further 3 adult Black Terns which flew south, 14 Whimbrel south, 4 smart summer plumaged Grey Plover flew south, great flocks of Terns flew south, 2 Golden Plover flew south, 2 close Arctic Skuas flew south, the shear sight of these dark marauders from the north panacked a Common Tern which immediately dropped the fish it had and this was eagerly taken in by the piratical skuas. Later on a Little Gull flew north and over the Scroby Sand wind turbines off Great Yarmouth. Also 2 Common Scoter were seen 2/3 of the way out on the sea.
