Venus Pool - Arctic Tern up

A tea-time glance at 'Shropshire Birds' noted a 'Comic Tern' had been seen at lunch time. Outside it was throwing it down - would it still be there? Having got Sandwich and Common on the local list - it would be nice to add another? And I did, the Tern was firmly grounded by the wind and torrentail rain, although that short tail led to doubts at first, the short red bill and feet pointed to an Arctic - my third Tern species on the deck at VP this year.
