Gull-billed Tern

Yesterday I drove over to Kent to see the Gull-billed Tern on the Arc pits. I parked in the car park that was now reopened and got it straight away as two kind birders pointed out where the tern was feeding. A quick view of the Black-winged Stilt which was also on the Arc pit showed nicely. Then I drove around to the otherside of the pit to the main road to gain a better view. Most birders were now gathering here and was by far a better place to view it from and was really easy to pick out amongst the Common Terns. I stayed for about a hour then had a walk around the lighthouse at Dungeness enjoying the 2 Black Redstarts being blown about in the strong wind. And I finshed up having lunch from the fish hut- which is highly recommed!
