Hi Ron

I believe it was me who pointed the tern out to you today. Nice to meet you. If you want to find what else is around in the Tame then check out my blog!

Good to meet you too Tom. As I said to you at the time, I wouldn't have recongnised it if I'd seen it by myself so many thanks again for pointing it out.

Shustoke Reservoir, 24/09/2010

Visited Shustoke Reservoir for the first time this afternoon and came across 3 Black Terns over the centre of the main pool - still present at 7:05 pm when I left. Also a Common Tern on one of the buoys, my first Rμ**Ϋ Duck of the year, 2 Gadwalls, 3 Pochards and a Kingfisher present. The much smaller number of Mallards there compared to my local lakes was surprising.


P.S. Talking of Earlswood, a juvenile Arctic Tern remains there for its 7th day! 2 Common Terns were present recently for a couple of days too.
