American black Tern

I went to Covenham reservoir yesterday for the black winged tern.
Posed very obligingly from the outset.
It patrolled up and don the east end and whilst there was quite a few people chasing it up and down, it was equally as rewarding to wait for it to cme a it eventually did.
the back up cast was provided in the form of 2 obliging little stints.
Went over to Rimac for the buff breasted sandpipers but they failed to show.
Nice late summers day but not a patch on this time last year-we need some strong easterly winds and quick.
