Weather takes a "Tern" for the better. 12th April 2012.

 With a couple of hours to spare and the rain holding off I got up to "Bev's Birdland" with the hope that something new might be in, there had been a few bits and bobs from Broom and places fresh in so I was hoping for a tern at least.
 And I was not to be disappointed either, finding 3 maybe 4 Common Terns ranging over the lake and alighting on the nesting boxes at the island. Loudly announcing their arrival as they did circuits along the river before resting on the scrape.
 The LRP was still present along with the other plovers and waders minus the Ruff seen just days before. Then it was time to get to the car as the rain once again started.
