2nd May. Today was the first day of the year that I have watched terns and Hirundines in number flying over the lake. There were at least ten Common Terns, thirty-five + Swallows, ten + Sand Martins and a handful of House Martins. I tried to capture a decent photograph of a Common Tern. I was too particular about the background, being on the wrong side of the lake and by the time I started to feel the cold I gave up. Not checked yet to see if I got a half decent shot.
