Seen from Transco trail, flying fairly high overhead from the direction of Harrier Meadow, circled over the marsh a couple times and then I lost sight of them. Large terns with stiff, gull-like wingbeats. In photos I can see they had slightly faded black caps, scaly upperwing pattern and orange bills.
