Went as far as SP then made a quick back-up w/stop at Hellcat, Pannes; mod wind everywhere, sun, Fall-ish feel to the air; had two targets/got on one of them by sheer luck of timing!

    Comments: Only assuming conti bird. SHEER luck of timing-at Hellcat when P.V's post was read that this fella was seen at 11:40am at the SP, now being 12:45-we were at Hellcat ready to pack it in when we hoofed it quickly to the cars and headed for the Pannes. No sooner had we arrived at 1pm when out of the window I spotted what I knew was a white tern by its flying posturing. It gave us a 5min show of its aerial prowess, moving far L, far R across our view a number of times, and diving toward the 'coated' waters, not submerging; thick black bill, black legs tucked, smudgy to side and above eyes, dark tips to outer primaries seen/ pics to be added soon-then as fast as it appeared, it flew deep into the marshes not to return
