White Winged Black Tern: What a cracking birthday pressie, my first white wing Tern on my first visit to Elton res not one but two.

No morning cup of tea, breakfast or time to have a proper wash, and I was out winging my way to Bury.
The little buggers were incredibly difficult to photograph, small and fast and non stop as they chased small insects across the top of the water.
It was nice to bump in to Dennis Atherton and co who had the pleasure of a free day, me on the other hand could only spare half an hour before heading back to some family commitments.
