Had some time this morning to check the Ashdod ponds. Arrived there only to discover that I had lost my key to the gate. As a fresh westerly was blowing, I went for plan B and drove down to the beach. It was actually quite a productive hour. There was a good passage (in local standards) of Common Terns, felt almost like Spurn... Among them I spotted one adult White-cheeked Tern, which is a pretty good record for the Med coast. Apart for that some gulls (Yellow-legs and Baltics), and one distant shearwater that must have been a scopoli's.
