One hundred and eighty species has fallen in the county of Gwent this year.Quite glad that the Black Tern buggered off as this is a much better 180Th to get.My 4Th Aquatic for Gwent,2 twitchable and 2 in the nets.5 Curlew Sands showed at Goldcliff later on but couldn't find any Egrets of any sort in the Usk area.

3 Questions For A Black Tern

Question 1
Did you know i was on holiday as you turned up the day i left?
Question 2
Did you Know i would be back on Saturday so decided to leave on Friday?
Question 3
Did you know you would have been my 180Th gwent species this year?

Back to Cornwall and the winds looked good but didnt turn out to be anything near what was forecast.But a couple of seawatches later produced,Balearic and Sooty Shearwaters,Long Tailed ,Arctic and Great Skuas,Sandwich, Common And Little Terns.
Checked out the wet field at Caerleon this evening which held 1 Med Gull and 14 Lapwing.
