The last few weeks have been amazing down at N. Beach as can be seen in my previous posts. It is like going back in time to the mid 80’s when I’ve just started birding and Eilat north beach was teaming with great birds. Bridled Ternswhich have shown a great influx this summer and daily groups of up to 15 birds seen very close to N Beach (this morning while enjoying with my kids at the Coral reserve had a group of 11 flying very close).

But no lessinteresting:White-cheeked Ternshave become the most common species over the last 2 weeks with groups of up to 35 individuals regularly seen.

Cory’s Shearwatershave also been regularly seen (up to 5 individuals together) and the odd Arctic Skua, Lesser Crested Tern were all spotted regularly.

We’ve had a great time so far with no less than 7 Tern speciesoccurringregularly (4 species in this photo).
