Hi all.  Have just spent easter down at fingal beach on the tweed coast. On 
saturday i was surfing and ended up getting swept a fair way down the beach. As 
i was paddling back in i saw a brown tern like bird standing on the beach and 
went to investigate, as it turns out it was a common noddy. I didnt have my 
bins on me at the time so i slowly walked up to the bird and not a word of a 
lie ended up sitting beside it! As i sat down the bird shuffled its feet a bit 
but after a couple of seconds settled down and seamed not at all worried a 
human was sitting about a metre away. Has anyone else had experiences with sea 
birds being so trusting? Also can anyone tell me if this is a rare sighting in 
that neck of the woods. I would not have expected to find a common noddy that 
far south and it was a welcome tick. Regards John.
