Forster's Tern 20 Nov 2016 Mistley Andrew Allen 1 1st winter gave good close flight views from Quay.
Forster's Tern 19 Nov 2016 Mistley Sean Nixon 1 1W off Mistley Walls
Forster's Tern 19 Nov 2016 Mistley Lee G R Evans 1 An excellent find by Neil Harvey. The bird had been sitting on a marker buoy just prior to my arrival at 1530 and then proceeded to spend the next 20 minutes flying back and forth along Mistley Walls. As it was high tide, it flew east to the quay and it was here that I and around 45 other observers managed to add it to our Suffolk lists as it fished along the channel there. It then returned back west before once again flying east, where I last saw it just after 4.10pm heading much farther east past the quay. First-winter. Photographed
