Black Skimmer

This sighting came in from Penny Palmer:

What a treat!  I was kayaking in the Slough on Wednesday of this week, May 7, 2015, and this lovely black skimmer flew past.

She added: I’ve just been looking through my photographs and have found one of the skimmer flying overhead with a small fish – and then feeding its chick on the sandbar across from Monterey Bay Kayaks.   Hopefully this will mean a few more residents in the future.
