Black Tern - Brockholes NR LWT - 12th September 2013
At 08:31 this morning, yesterday's Black Tern dropped in out of nowhere onto Ribbleton Pool and then performed remarkably well hawking on No1, Ribbleton and Nook pools. I even heard it calling regularly which was superb!
Another highlight was capturing a sharp photo of the above Migrant Hawker. A task I have been trying to achieve with any flying odonata for the past 8 years!
Other sightings from the morning: 07:40-11:25
