The adult Bridled Tern continued on Great Gull Island this morning. It frequents the rocks on the northeast corner of the island. The island is a closed research station, so people cannot land on the island. This now ties last year's three day stay.
There are many fewer terns (the breeding Common and Roseates) around than just yesterday. The many shearwaters visible from the island for the last ten were not evident today. Only a handful of Great Shearwaters were seen from the island this morning.
