Birding (again) - 14/06/09

3K common tern with adult, do not see many of these, or maybe I am overlooking them?

Petersberg - an old gravel pit, been ignoring it a bit this spring but it can turn up odd birds

Nipped out again in the evening, hoping that the reported Caspian tern had holed up in the bay. Checked Båstad seafront, a few common terns here (including a 3K bird) but no sign of carrot-bill. Checked out Petersberg before going home and had a superb basking grass snake that avoided the camera sadly. Pretty quiet otherwise, although I watched an excellent male ringed plover doing it's puff-chested, goose-step display prior to mounting the female. Racy stuff.
