Black Tern

Friday 5 May

Walkng back across the fen I noticed distantly a handful of birds over the irrigation res. Wow! Black Terns! Since I was nearer home I called in for scope and camera and could see them flitting around from the bedroom window - garden tick no. 118! By the time I had walked down to the res the birds were wheeling high in the sky. They started to come back down, but unfortunately they headed south and pitched down on to Bevill's Leam. I nipped back home for the car and popped down to Tebbitt's Bridge where the birds could be viewed feeding along the leam down towards Froghall Bridge - too far for any snaps. Boo!
