Today we finally received the news that the 2002 Porthmadog Elegant Tern has finally been accepted by BBRC and has been sent to BOU. Also today, I've noticed last years Royal Tern has been accepted as well. So what better way to celebrate this news than by posting some pictures! So thats 16th species of Tern seen in Britain plus American Black as well. So its the Least, Aleutian and American Sarnie next. Below are two members of the Clayhead Crew shamelessly celebrating the Royal Tern, plus pictures of the Royal Tern and beneath that the Elegant Tern

A phone call from PJ had me hurtling down the M6 at 19-00hrs following the finding of Staffordshire 2nd ever Franklin's Gull. This was a full summer plumage adult, but it spent most of the time asleep. I managed a few pictures of it sleeping plus some shots of Chasewater now it is drained.
