After a morning's ringing, I drove across to Thrybergh Country Park, with Jayne, to see a Black Tern that had been reported on the Bird Guides website. I haven't seen Black Tern for many years, and this is my first blog post mentioning this species.
The bird in question was "showing well" throughout our visit, but was, unfortunately, too far out to get a photo. It was constantly flying around, picking insects off the surface of the water and being mobbed by the Black-headed Gulls. A great bird to see, and a nice addition to the "Year List".
Year List update:
171 - Black Tern
