Forster's Tern

While in North Clare today to clock up the adult Ring-necked Duck at Roo Lough on the Clare/Galway border (which I got), I headed to Kinvarra in search of the adult winter Forster's Tern.  Thankfully the tern showed up but very far out in the middle of the bay and it eventually came in to land on rocks with Lapwing where they went to roost as the tide dropped.  I also manged to see a couple of Spotted Redshanks at Coronroo but the Black Brant found two days ago at New Quay was elusive.
