Gossy Tern

Gosforth Park, Common Tern
Quite simply, beautiful birds to watch.
Only five juveniles left on the Tern raft. Numbers of Mallard on the water and not much else until i spotted a Little Egret in the trees between the hides. It lifted after a bit and headed in a westerly direction. I headed around to the other hide and on the way noticed what must have been the same Little Egret on the flash outside the reserve. Talking to a gentleman in the hide he said the L.E. had been hanging about for about 3 weeks. Just before i had to leave to pick the missus up from THE Freeman a Red Kite briefly appeared at the far end of the reserve but quickly disappeared being mobbed by Corvids.
