White-winged Black Tern – 2nd Poole harbour record found at Swineham – Posted 16/09/13

Some exceiting news broke late yesterday afternoon, when a potential juvenile White-winged Black Tern was discovered at Swineham GP, a species thats only ever been recorded in Poole harbour once before. The bird was photographed by Peter Moore in terrible conditions, so full credit to him and the finder of the bird Marcus Lawson for even being out yesterday afternoon! On close examination of the photos, the bird was confirmed as a White-winged Black Tern and was re-found again this morning at 9:00am giving great views at it hawked up and down the main gravel pit. Thanks Peter Moore for the lovely close up photos.
