Wood Lane - Common Tern

Had a bit of a session with Mike Stokes today in the hope of 1. Dotterel, 2. A decent wader, 3. A Tern. We failed miserably on points 1 and 2, getting soaked too in the search for 1 in low cloud and rain....

The only vague success was a Common Tern at Wood lane, which made a nice change from the recent influx of Arctics! Here's a composite sequence of manoeuvres as it plucked flies from the water surface.

Cruising along....

Banking into the turn

Then, into the dive.....

There was nothing of note at Venus Pool, Colemere, The Mere, Whixall Floods or Long lane!
