Main Sighting: Comic terns
Whilst having breakfast this morning at approx 8.30am looking towards the Severn (although not actually seeing it) 5 Comic terns flew downstream following the shore, luckily high enough for me to see them above the trees, unfortunately before I could react and grab some nearby bins they were gone. Hope ok to post as not a member GOS.
