This blog is about my birding exploits, which mainly take place in the Weymouth/Portland area, in Dorset. Will also include stuff from elsewhere, plus some other critters too. Hope you enjoy.

One Good Tern Deserves Another

Lodmoor comes up trumps again, this time with a sumptuous adult summer plumaged White-winged Black Tern. Whoever found this beauty must have had the biggest smile on their face afterwards. Thanks go to Daragh and Paul for giving me the rapid news on this bird.  Have been on domestic duties lately, with my wife laid up with a bad back, so haven't been able to do any birding, so this bird made a nice break from my chores. Sadly, the bird was always distant for photography, but I hope you can see how lovely this bird was from the following images, enjoy.
