Above a truly awful record shot of the Welsh Carrot Bill as it roosted nearly one kilometre away on the sands at Black Rock but hey its OML. No sign of the 'B'Team I believe they were 'shopping' at the time. Over the next hour or so we watched the ROYAL TERN glow in the ensuing darkness. Less than 40 birders actually connected with the boy most from the North West and one team from Llama land. What a bloody blocker this could turn out to be, as I write this Wednesday 17th its not been seen since oh what a shame. Congrats to Fred who joins the 'A' Stars as its newest member (come on Jono pull your finger out).The gathered Carrot Bill appreciation society delight in texting/phoning their East Coast/Southern (ex)friends to grip them off good style. Sorted as we say in Manchester.
