An adult Bridled Tern was discovered today on the north east side of Great Gull Island. This is the third summer in a row it/one has spent part of the late summer here. Unfortunately, the island is a research station and landing is not permitted.
Shearwater numbers are down today, but yesterday morning there were hundreds of Shearwaters, mostly Cory’s and Great with less than 5 Sooty and 2 Manx. At minimum 5 Parasitic Jaegers were working the Tern flocks around the island.
