This report is a little late, but certainly noteworthy when Harry Sell and I observed over 650 Black Terns migrating south from Fort Fisher spit. It was over twenty years ago that the late Dr. Maurice Barnhill and I observed thousands of Black terns at the old Corncake Inlet (no longer, and when Bald Head was truly an island). I haven't seen this many since that earlier observation. I am curious to know if anyone has seen these numbers of Black Terns in a migratory group.
