A large tern spotted offshore over the Atlantic watched for approximately 45 seconds as it steadily flew north circling only once. It appeared all black above and white below. I was unable to see any white on the tail but it might not have been possible at that distance. This was a first for me in the park.

Five very small terns seen quite a distance offshore in the NW channel as they dove to the water feeding. This is quite characteristic of all migrant terns. They seem to feed well offshore for a week or so upon arrival and departure.

A large bird with rounded broad wings and broad rounded head was spotted flying up the NW channel. It flew very low over the water with six or so deep strokes and then a glide. I could see the dark tips to the primaries and then the buffy broad band. The bird appeared quite light but I have never seen the Northern race down here and suspect it was the lighting that made it appear that pale.
