18th May 2014 – Black Terns and Yellow Wags…

It was great to see two smart Black Terns at Longtown this afternoon, it’s a species that can be very hard to catch up with in Cumbria. In fact it’s only the 2nd time I’ve seen the species in spring up here, all the others have been juveniles in autumn. It was also an enjoyable challenge trying to get some photos of them – they don’t half twist and turn and zip around!

    Nice photos of the Black Terns. Marsh terns have always been one of my favourite groups.
