Black Skimmers return to Long Beach

I first noticed the skimmers on Feb. 26, 2018.  Following two days off, they reappeared today, Mar. 1.  Their numbers, frequency and length of stay have diminished over the past few years so I was happy to see them reappear.  A group of 30 surrounded a lone Royal Tern on the sand between Redondo and Loma Avenues, just west of the pier.
