The Weekend and Monday
Black Tern morning only, when I saw it, the bird was resting on the red buoy straight out. I was pushed for time but got back over later in the evening when it had gone, the only birds of note were four Common Sandpiper.
There was a steady stream of Arctic Tern going through I saw around a dozen late on, with a single Common Sandpiper.
I spent the morning at the Reservoir, there was another Black Tern, with 8 Common Tern. I had quite a good morning “cheers Dave Hutton”. I had a Coal Tit feeding fledglings and there were a number of Whitethroat in. There was little in the way of hirundines over the water so it was a bit of a surprise when I went over later that I had a Hobby hunting over the Reservoir.
