Thirteen Black Terns were visible from the feed station at Pitsford on Tuesday morning. The birds were very mobile feeding up and down the Scaldwell Bay, occasionally rising skyward in a group before returning to feeding.
The moth traps were again quiet with a few of the catch illustrated below.
On the butterfly front Small Coppers were evident as well as the first Common Blue I have seen on the reserve this year. Sadly it wouldn't settle for me to photograph, the Small Copper however posed nicely.
