Black Terns at Dickleburgh, 28 April 2021

Very welcome news of 5 Black Terns at Dickleburgh Moor filtered through while I was at work today. So, still covered in paint I went straight after work to find them still present. What a gorgeous sight in the late afternoon sun! They alternated between feeding and resting on posts in the water. 12 Common Terns was also a good count. Also there was a single Greenshank, 2 Redshanks, Yellow Wagtail, 2 Little Egrets and an influx of House Martins, a pair of which were mud-collecting so hopefully are nesting locally.
