Black Terns.

Another bonus bird this evening - two Black Terns (lifer 199; year tick 176) at Frampton's Sailing Lake. The birds were easy to spot after a quick dash down the M5 after work. Two minutes after my arrival one bird was kind enough to settle on a floating buoy (or whatever they're called) long enough for me to attempt a photograph.

Decent numbers of Black Terns about today - 36 at Chew and 25 at Farmoor. Might've expected more than 2 at Frampton!!!
