One good Tern.......

14 May 2009
Well two actually, in the field pond at rear of our garden two Common Terns which had been flying over for the last few days finally plucked up the courage to start fishing.

The two birds stayed for a few minutes making several successful attempts for fry (not Stephen who lives three fields away!).

Work in the field has seen the Geese absent for a few days but the Nightingale is still singing so hopefully hold a territory. Seeing it of course will be impossibe, too far away even for the scope and no access to the scrub hedge where the noise is coming from. This hedge line also has a mature Oak in it, perhaps where the Little Owl is.
