Wednesday 25th April

With heavy rain forecast for most of the day, combined with the date, it didn’t take to much working out that it could be a good day bird wise. Shustoke is can be a magnet for Terns at this time of year and so it proved. In all there were up to six Common Tern, one Arctic Tern plus a Black Tern. Added to that an adult Little Gull (late afternoon only) it was a good day.

There were lots of hirundines, but strangely no House Martin, at least three Swift were also present. I had Marsh Tit singing and calling between the pools and a single Redshank was joined by two Oystercatchers late on.
