Further to Jill's email, I've worked with Clive Allen (who found and
photographed both birds within 15 minutes of each other!) to produce a
sightings page. If anyone goes to see the birds let me know and I will
update the page with the details. We're particularly interested in any news
of the tern, which hasn't been re-seen since it's discovery on Tuesday. I'm
going up there today and will put anything I find on the page.
