At Penryhn today (very hot) in the morning and afternoon. Of note:

9 PGPs (up from 6 yesterday) - morning on the oyster bed
6 Red Knot
30+ BTGodwit

This afternoon:
13 Whiskered Tern (still there at 6pm)
4 Gull-Billed Tern (came and went 3 times)
1 WF Tern (the one with the slight notch)
18 Crested Tern
(at one stage there were all 4 species in the bins)

The north-westerlies (and probably the drought inland) seem to see the 
Whiskered and Gull-Billed Turn up. The Whiskered are great-looking birds - 
bright red longish legs, black cap extending deeply at the back, red/reddish 
bills, white patch between black cap and dark underparts.
