Third Time Lucky

After dipping on the Caspian Tern on Sunday at Kenfig, again on Monday at Llanelli and not having the confidence to go on Tuesday Mr Bevan and myself decided to have another go at it this morning.

Arriving as the WWT Llanelli was opening we quickly made our way to the British Steel Hide to hear that it had been there but had flown away. Within a couple of seconds of that being said someone shouted it's still here. Relief all round. Soon we were treated to great scope views and it finally flew a little closer, had a snooze, flew closer again and then flew off over the trees. No tunnocks available but custard doughnuts were a good substitute.

Also really good numbers of breeding plumage Med. Gulls around.

We wandered over to the Welsh Water Hide and then the Peter Scott Hide where we were treated to the Caspian coming in and trying to fish but getting mobbed and then chased off by the Black Headed Gulls.
