Where were all the terns coming from?


Paul and birding-aussers,
The Terns were following the coastline from Abbot Point to the North through and towards Cape Edgecumbe ( I beleive they call this area Queens Bay).Cape Edgecumbe provides a suitable roosting spot for many seabirds with a number of rocky outcrops just off shore. While some Terns were involved in feeding a great many were flying very low just above the waves. The feeding flocks were concentrated around the mouth of the Don River and off shore for at least 800m. Tide was coming in.
