Bit of bird movement at last!

An early visit to Chard res this morning paid off with 2 nice black terns close to the hide before relocating to the east shore. They only stayed for an hour before disappearing but at least the local birders got to see them. Whilst looking for the terns, Andy Grinter had brief views of a pied flycatcher - a Chard res 1st no less! Although it never reappeared, Dave Helliar had a peregrine, sparrowhawk and a hobby hunting martins too, all good records for the res.
