Cardiff Bay

Late afternoon, rain stopped, so I popped over to the Ice Rink boardwalk by Cardiff Bay to try & see the adult Little Gull that had been reported. Pulled up and stopped the car …. rain started again! It stopped after 10 mins so I headed out, and scanning with binos and immediately got onto the bird in the middle of the Bay. They’re pretty easy to pick up as the jet black underwings of the paddle shaped wings flash at you as the bird tilts and jigs tern-like low over the water. Enjoyed some nice scope views as it flew up & down in a regular pattern. Also mid Bay was a pair of Goosander.
