Jack and I had great views this evening. All 3 birds present feeding with 9 Black Fronted Terns. The Southerly had them all nicely hawking midges quite close to the road at the Northern end of the middle pond, West side of the road edge.

Sorry. I'm only missing an 'East' in there to make things more confusing! :lol:
