A Quick Decision

With an early start in the morning I was just getting some food sorted. A quick look at Twitter and a message “six Black Terns from Twitchers” at 17.55. a quick time check, it was 18.08 and I was planning on being in bed by half-seven. The shall I shan’t I lasted about thirty seconds and about two minutes later I was on my way. Arriving at Twitchers initially there was no sign of any terns but a minute or so later two appeared from the northern end of the lake. They then moved back out of sight. A Cuckoo was calling and a couple of Little Egrets flew across towards lake 68. The two terns then reappeared and again moved back out of sight. This is a regular thing when these birds are here as they often favour the left hand end of the lake. They were soon back and this time I counted five as they flew along regularly dropping down to pick something from the surface of the lake. Then it was time to head home and with the A419 being nice and quiet I was back indoors at five to seven. Then it was a microwaved jacket potato and off to bed.
