**MEGA** Elegant Tern

On Friday evening there was news that an Elegant Tern had been seen at Sandy Point, Hayling Island. I headed for Sandy Point early the next day and waited for about 4 hours with no luck, news was then received that it had been relocated in Pagham Harbour from Church Norton. A quick drive whilst hoping there would be a space in the small carpark, in fact I got the last space. After a wait of about 20 minute’s the Elegant Tern was seen in flight over the tern island in the middle of the harbour. It was seen a few times in flight before it flew across the harbour and out to sea. No pictures of the tern but a few of the crowd and Pagham Harbour.
