That window came at around 1pm, and after checking it was still around made the 30 minute journey.
There were quite a number of birders lined up outside Horrocks hide, so I knew they were still around. Helpfully, they seemed to be working the water together, so it was easy to follow both. Although they stayed out in the middle of the flash, the light was good, so it was quite easy to track them. They were always too far away to give me anything decent with a 300mm lens, but here are my best efforts. A nice shot of the pair together.
American Black Tern doing the chasing. Quite a lot smaller than the European neighbour.
No you can't! There's only room for one on here!
Very well done and a good couple of shots, a good size comparison.ReplyDelete
Great catch and wingspread!ReplyDelete
Great pictures showing the American Black Tern .... do not know the birds, but beat them up on the web.ReplyDelete
Many of the birds that are displayed by Anni and Stewart we have not in this country (Denmark).
Can see that you have directed your link to your blog ....... the second link did not work either.
Wish you a good Sunday :)
