79 deg F at start and overcast, sweltering and sunny at end. Low pressure system moved offshore of the Outer Banks this morning, with rain in Virginia Beach halting around 11:00 or soon after. Counter clockwise spin off the system put easterlies onshore and seemed to cause a large southbound movement of terns (perhaps birds displaced northward by the storm simply returning to where they were). Seven tern species observed, though no GBTE present, lots of Commons.

    Details: Immature flew right over the road access to the beach. First time I have ever had one at the park, quite rare on the immediate coastline, a very nice surprise as I was chatting with Brian the warden.
