Whitburn Obs & Sandhaven Beach

Only birds of interest where a large flock of Manx Shearwaters heading South.

South Sheilds: Sandhaven Beach
Went to Sandhaven Beach for the Roseate Terns that are there. Had 2 adults and here is a picture of one of them (below). Also present where Great-black backed Gull(s), Lesser-black bakced Gull(s), Herring Gull(s), Common Gull(s), and probably Black-headed Gull(s). There was a nice year tick for me with 7 Sanderling taking the year list up to 178 species of bird.
