White-winged Black at Hornsea
Some record shots of the juvenile White-winged Black Tern at Hornsea Mere on Sunday. Unfortunately the blustery wind made taking photos difficult on the south side of the Mere from first field.
Also present were up to 20 Little Gulls... White-winged Black in the background.
Up to 12 Red-crested Pochards were shoved around the Mere by the boat racing event taking place, though always a little distant.
Also a Common Sandpiper, a mobile Greenshank and an adult Yellow-legged Gull, in the centre of the Mere, added to the interest.
A good number of Black-tailed Skimmer (15) were in the sheep field on the south side of the Mere.
