Black Terns


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.
