Went back to Lodmoor again this evening and it seems like it's goodbye to the White-winged Black Tern, which flew out to sea this evening and didn't return. It had flown out to sea on a few occasions this evening, but soon came back and I sensed it was probably going to leave. Sure enough, it eventually departed. The images below were taken on one of it's forays out to sea, with the background of a dark grey cloud. Without doubt, this bird will go down as one of the most enjoyable birds of the year.
