POMS at last 21/5/10

Big thanks goes to the Selsey Bill for putting out the news of 4 Pomarine Skuas flying east at 08.10.
Dreading the thought that i wasn't go to see any this year, this really was my last chance.

Anyway at 10.02 they finally arrived at Splash Point and they stayed in the bay up to when i left at 11.45. They showed well at times often chasing the local Kittiwakes putting on a superb display. They comprised of 3 pale morph and 1 dark morph. One of the light morphs had a particularly long 'spoon' which was viewable at a long range.

Also seen were 2 Black and 2 Little Terns amongst many migrating Arctic Terns, summer plum. Grey Plover, Greenshank and a few flocks of Common Scoter.
