Farnes again! 22nd July 2013.

Paul finally got time off to go for the Bridled Tern, this time though we had to go on the usual tourist trip around the islands, but happily Serenity Boat Tours allowed us longer on the island than they usually do, its normally an hour, but we got 1.30pm to 4.30pm. Thank heavens we did too, the bird did not appear till 3.40ish!

The morning was galling though, a “Fea’s Petrel” went past Newbiggin earlier at close range and as we arrived at Seahouses to be greeted by thick fog it went past Beadnall and the Farnes… even sitting on the sea. If the fog had not lifted as fast as it did we would have had a chance with it, even more irritating now as its thought maybe to have been Zino’s GRRRRRR

Anyhow the birds were brilliant on the Farnes, we got good views of everything too!
