Inner Marsh Farm - Whiskered Tern

A few hours sleep after high Wycombe..... The week up in North East beckoned (not all birding - I had to work as well!!) and with a Whiskered Tern reported at Inner Marsh Farm, I decided to head up via the M6. It wasn't much of a detour and on arrival mid morning, the hustle and bustle was over - I even got parked in the reserve car park!!

The Tern was showing well but distant (too distant really for photography but I couldn't resist a couple of record shots!) The black blobs seen in the background are flies!! I reckon this Tern will hang around for quite some time as there is plenty of food!!

Male Garganey also present, numerous Blackwits and a Knot, it was now midday and I needed to move on.....
