Little surprise at Chard Res...
Got a text from Dave Helliar on Saturday to say there was a common tern at Chard Res followed shortly by another to say a Little Gull had dropped in!! This is a very rare bird at the res, that last being back in 2007 so I wasted no time in heading out to take a look. The first winter little gull was flying up and down the res while the Common Tern stayed in much the same corner trying to avoid the strong winds.
