Burn Mouth or Burnmouth

What is this place called? Chibburn Mouth? Oh who cares?

Whatever it is called it is a great place to see Roseate Terns. They are so easy to pick out! Just look at the difference between these birds and the Common Terns. Bill colour is not the best indicator because on the beach yesterday the birds displayed three different colours; all black, red base and black bill then orange red and black tip.

Also found this small moth, think it might be Pyrausta despicata, but waiting for TT, Northumberland Moths to put me right.
Many thanks Tom for quick response and confirmation.
