Finally the year list ticked over again today, with a brief visit to Abberton.
A scan from the new causeway produced the goods, as the tern was quickly located hunting across the water before resting up on the vegetation at the end of the spit, allowing good if some what distant scopes views.
An added bonus was the presence of a Black Tern, along with a hawking Hobby that put the local Starlings into panic.
Five Common Sandpipers dropped in along with a couple of Little Ringed Plovers along the water's edge, and Yellow and Grey Wagtails were also noted.
Maybe this will be the prelude to a few good birds turning up in the coming weeks.
