Ynyslas terns

For most of today there were hundreds of Commic Terns distantly feeding off Ynyslas brickhouse (thanks to Russell). I had a couple of tries at trying to count them and got 170 and then 133 a few hours later, most of them were too distant to assign species confidently, but they appeared to be mostly Arctic's. A pale-phase Arctic Skua was attracted to the frenzy. Cattle Egrets and the Ring-billed Gull were still around and there were five Shoveler on Glandwr.
