Black Tern

07.30 at The Patch this morning DW was already there scanning the Gulls. Over the boil 3 Little Gulls, a 1st summer Common Tern and my first Black Tern of the Autumn. On the beach 10+ Mediterranean Gulls and a few Terns in the Gull roost. Off shore a few Gannets, a single Common Scoter, a Grey Seal and a Harbour Porpoise. The Black Redstart still singing in the power station, 
At the observatory the juvenile House Martin growing fast on its diet of Dark Arches.
A Common Sandpiper and 2 Ringed Plovers at the south end of the ARC, the Swallows now feeding young in the Screen Hide, Reed and Cetti's Warblers still singing there. On the islands 4 Black-tailed Godwits, a Green Sandpiper, many Lapwing and 100s of eclipse duck.
This afternoon at Galloways a male Marsh Harrier was of interest.
