Little Tern

Spot the Little Tern. I'm very lucky to be able to see species like Little Tern from the back garden but I crave good views and, under normal circumstances, would have shot down to Mudbank to gain a few hundred yards. Actually I'd normally have been looking from Mudbank in the first place, but even from there the birds on Cockle Sands are always pretty distant. Need to get a boat really.
First Little Tern of 2020 for me today. Other migrants included 13 Bar-tailed Godwit (including a number of breeding-plumaged birds), 3 Whimbrel, 25+ Sandwich Tern and another Swift. Also seen were c30+ Black-headed Gull and a first-summer Mediterranean Gull.
