One Good Tern Deserves Another and Another

Bird News: Ibsley Waterlittle tern 1, little gull 1, black tern 1. Ivy lake redshank 1.

I was only briefly at Blashford today and the rain made seeing much in the way of wildlife difficult. Opening up the Tern hide I scanned the small group of common terns to see if there was any sign of yesterday’s sandwich tern, there wasn’t, however as I did so I heard a little tern calling. Remarkable, two usually pretty strictly coastal terns in two days!

At Ivy Lake all was quiet apart from the rather unusual sight of a redshank standing on the floating boom in the south-west corner of the lake.

I did not get out on site again, but reports which came in later suggest there were more birds arriving, including a little gull and yet another good tern, this time a black tern, always one of the great highlights of the spring.
