Summertime Blues

Adult Sandwich Tern

As in skies, not melancholia. A full summary of recent sightings to follow in a day or two, but for now, a few shots from recent days in the bay, with the sun shining and the mercury rising.

Juvenile Sandwich Tern (the first few appearing today)

Common Scoters (with Bempton Cliffs as a background) - big numbers on the move every day of late

Manx Shearwater from this morning - a fairly typical view from the seawatch hut
