Blast from the past - FORSTER'S TERN twitch at Swanpool Beach, Falmouth, in November 1980 - How many birders can you identify?



Neil Alford very kindly emailed me this photograph of birders twitching the very first FORSTER'S TERN in Cornwall in November 1980.

A very baby-faced LGRE is standing to the left of the crowd, the rear-admiral to his right (Arthur Livett). Neil is eight birders right of me, the photograph also featuring Nigel Redman, Chreis Harbard, Pete Findon, Trevor Feltham, Mick Turton, 'Dipper', 'Big Jake', Tim Stowe, Steve Williams, Paul Oldfield and others.
